EPA Rule for State Water Pollution Authority Destined for Court

Environmental Law Chair, Jeff Porter, spoke to Bloomberg Law about legal challenges EPA may face to its new Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification Rule which allows states to hold up projects requiring Federal permits or licenses.

Jeff said, “EPA’s water quality certification rule is most certainly heading to court. EPA has not only reversed the Trump Administration EPA’s attempt to limit the roles of States and Tribes in Federal Clean Water Act permitting, it has gone a considerable distance in the other direction.”
