Professor Laura Murphy Announces Milestone in Important Vermont Clean Water Case
July 19, 2013
The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic at Vermont Law School today announced a milestone in an important case that marks a major step forward for clean water in Vermont. Almost five years ago, the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic (ENRLC) filed a Petition with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on behalf of Conservation Law Foundation (CLF). The Petition called upon EPA to withdraw Vermont’s authority to administer the State’s Clean Water Act program, or to require the State to implement meaningful improvements. Now, the Petition has been conditionally resolved through successful collaboration among the ENRLC, CLF, EPA Region 1, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
