Coffee and Compliance: US Supreme Court's Ruling on Groundwater Discharges & the Clean Water Act - Sean Herman, Hanson Bridgett The US Supreme Court ruled that discharges to groundwater via a point source (e.g. an industrial facility or wastewater treatment plant) that reach a surface water can be regulated under the Clean Water Act. Typically, only point discharges to a navigable water are regulated under the Clean Water Act (e.g. need NPDES permits). However in an unusual 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled for the environmental group that was the plaintiff and potentially changed how companies will need to think about their regulatory compliance. Sean Herman, an Associate with Hanson Bridgett, will be breaking down the decision and explaining the impact for companies across the country.May 26, 20208:00am PDT30 minutes
