Program Overview:
On June 19, 2006 the U.S. Supreme Court decided the much anticipated cases of Rapanos v. United States and Carabell v. United States Army Corps of Engineers. Join our experts who will discuss what the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision means to Clean Water Act (CWA) / Wetlands practitioners and their clients. In its third-ever substantive review of CWA 404, the U.S. Supreme Court has addressed issues of crucial importance to the conservation and regulated communities. The Court’s decision will impact numerous entities from all persuasions, from government regulators and municipalities to environmental groups and land trusts, to farmers and agribusiness, to quarries, oil and gas companies and drillers, real estate developers and construction contractors. In addition, this decision may be a harbinger of things to come in environmental cases from a new Supreme Court.
