Horizontal Rule Mr. Shepherd:
The April 2011 Clean Water Protection Guidance recently published by EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides the agencies' views on the reach of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA) in light of the Supreme Court's decisions in Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (SWANCC) and Rapanos v. United States (Rapanos). If adopted, this Guidance will significantly expand federal CWA jurisdiction over millions of acres of property.

In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel of experts in the area of environmental law and policy will address the practical implications of the new Guidance. Panelists will address a range of key issues, including:

  • New obligations for the regulated community
  • Impacts the Guidance is likely to have on state wetlands jurisdiction
  • Areas of potential litigation and future regulation
  • Practical tips for industry
Register now and call in from anywhere to hear how this highly controversial rule will impact construction, development, various other industries, and the environment.

Moderated by Jeff B. Kray, Moderator, partner at Marten Law PLLC, our distinguished panel includes Susan Parker Bodine, partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, and Kim Diana Connolly, Professor of Law at the University at Buffalo Law School.
