In its recent County of Maui decision, the U.S. Supreme Court held that
the Clean Water Act requires an NPDES permit for direct discharges
or “when there is the functional equivalent of a direct discharge.” The
opinion gave some guidance on the factors to be considered but noted
that these determinations will be case-specific. In this panel, the speakers
will discuss the decision and the factors set forth by the Court, as
well as the level of uncertainty created by the Court’s decision. Attorneys
can tune into this discussion to learn how states, municipalities,
businesses, and even individual landowners can move forward in
compliance with this decision and learn what this means for projects in
the Bay Area.
