THE CLEAN WATER ACT: LATEST DEVELOPMENTS AT THE EPA AND IN THE COURTS
Abstract:The federal Clean Water Act received an unusual degree of attention during the past year. Certain of its provisions, long dormant, are being revisited and reinterpreted in ways that will determine the direction of water quality law for years to come. Your success in achieving your company's or client's water quality goals will only be possible if you know the latest.
This manuscript will focus on recent developments in:
Civil and Criminal Enforcement of the Clean Water Act
Judicial Interpretations of the Clean Water Act
EPA Water Initiatives
The precise content of the August 13, 2002 presentation at the WEF Industrial Wastes Conference will be determined in large part by any new developments during the months immediately preceding the conference. The information contained in this manuscript was accurate as of May 21, 2002. Changes in the governing law and cases may have occurred in the interim. Thus, the reader should not rely on the case law cited herein without first confirming its validity.
