2004 Summer School Lecture Series: Clean Water Act
The Environmental Law Institute hosted a series of free lectures in Washington, DC to provide an introduction to the legal foundations of environmental protection in the United States. Summer law clerks, interns, and others who would want to acquire a working knowledge of the basics were invited to attend. Each presentation was made by an experienced practitioner and provided an overview of the history, main provisions, and essential vocabulary of the specific statute.
William A. Anderson II (Winston & Strawn), Susan MacIntyre (Winston & Strawn) and Alexandra Dunn (Association of Metropolitan Sewage Agencies) provided an overview of the Clean Water Act.
Mr. Anderson was involved in EPA’s early implementation of the Clean Water Act on behalf of the electric utility industry and has witnessed the evolution of EPA’s water pollution control programs take place via significant statutory amendments and regulatory revisions. A Partner in the DC office of Winston & Strawn, he maintains a broad private practice on behalf of industrial, commercial, and municipal clients.
