Recent Development with the Clean Water Act

Learn what you need to know to be in compliance and avoid costly mistakes and delays.

Most business operations, and most property development projects, require permits for water pollution prevention from federal or state environmental agencies, and often from local land use and sewer authorities. Although many consulting resources exist to help manage the Clean Water aspects of business activities and new projects the rapid and sometimes extensive changes in regulatory standards creates new risks for costly mistakes and delays. This topic reviews the established practices reflecting Best Practices for water issue management, and focuses on key issues where major changes in the law calls for careful attention or changes in approach. Emerging issues for government regulators which require special focus by the regulators to make the right calls and success in government management of activities affecting water quality, the environment, and health are also identified. Failing to have a proper approach to identifying requirements and approvals can lead to costly problems. Enforcement can be swift and severe when environmental harm is at stake.
