Description

The study of water pollution control regulation is a study of statutes and their administration. This casebook explores water pollution and the federal statute chiefly designed to control it, the Clean Water Act, and examines how water pollution is addressed, first by the common law and then by statute. An introduction provides the student with an understanding of what constitutes water pollution, where it originates, and how it can be controlled. These materials were originally designed for the introductory course in environmental regulation/environmental law at Pace Law School. A Teachers Manual includes exercises that teach students advanced legal research, familiarity with administrative law mechanisms, and the ability to integrate what they have learned about the Clean Water Act.show more

Review quote

"This is a wonderful resource. From its organization to selection of cases and materials and the questions and comments, this book reveals the complex regulatory scheme and the very developed area of environmental law. If a school could have only one in-depth environmental course the water law course would be the one to choose, particularly in light of the in-depth information and analysis provided here."--Irma S. Russell, NELPI Professor, University of Tulsa "College of Law and The National Energy-Environment Law and Policy Institute "show more
