Aspects of Clean Water Act may be Reviewed by SCOTUS


The Solicitor General has filed a brief advocating that the Supreme Court should hear County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Foundation.

At issue is whether pollutants if released from a point source are subject to the jurisdiction of EPA which applies the Clean Water Act. At issue is the potential for contaminants to percolate to groundwater and end up in navigable water.

The Court has yet to announce that it will hear cases relating to the Clean Water Act this term.
