Course Materials

This CLE course will provide attorneys with an overview of stormwater regulation and permitting issues, then delve into current developments that may impact facilities that are subject to these requirements.


The majority of facilities subject to stormwater rules are regulated by states, not directly by the U.S. EPA, but developments on the national level will affect state programs.

The panel will review changes under the new administration and the expected future impact.

Listen as our authoritative panel of environmental attorneys and technical experts provides an overview of stormwater regulation and permitting issues and discusses current developments that may affect facilities subject to these requirements.
