EPA as well as Corp of Engineers can take itself to court and win or lose. I imagine it's easy to control the outcome when you are both plaintiff and defendant.

"Following its defederalization in 1983, like many other programs during the Reagan years, the EERC had to adapt itself to the private sector if it was to survive"

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the U.S. federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order. The order establishing the EPA was ratified by committee hearings in the House and Senate. The agency is led by its Administrator, who is appointed by the president and approved by Congress. The current acting administrator is Bob Perciasepe. The EPA is not a Cabinet department, but the administrator is normally given cabinet rank.

If you read this you will see the EPA is not a scientific agency.
