Maggie Macdonald To Speak About Clean Water Act Permitting After County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund

On August 12, 2020, SPR Associate Maggie Macdonald will join Roux for a complimentary webinar on the effect of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund on Clean Water Act (CWA) permitting.  Registration is available HERE. The webinar will provide an overview of the CWA and the County of Maui decision, which held that pollutant​s discharged to groundwater can be regulated under the CWA if the discharge​s are the “functional equivalent of a direct discharge” to navigable waters.  Maggie and her fellow panelist, Kelly Coulon, will discuss the applicability of the decision to existing and future groundwater discharges, with specific examples from ​post-Maui cases ​and hypotheticals.
