Environmental Law Clinic

Chesapeake Watershed Forum


The Environmental Law Clinic co-presented a workshop at the Chesapeake Watershed Forum on advocating for effective Clean Water Act discharge permits in Shepherdstown, WV in September. Restoring the Chesapeake Bay requires strong, enforceable permits that minimize the discharge of pollutants into the Bay and its tributaries. The workshop taught participants how to obtain public information on permitted facilities, evaluate discharge permits and compliance documents, and communicate effectively with regulatory agencies throughout the permitting process. The workshop was a continuation of the Clinic’s efforts to ensure that environmental advocates in the Chesapeake Bay region are well-equipped to address potential threats their waterways and communities.
