Summer School: Clean Water

June 24, 2010 12:27 pm — 12:27 pm
Washington, DC
Co-sponsored by:
The Environmental Law Institute &
DC Bar

Each summer the ELI Summer School holds a series of seminars about the legal foundations of environmental protection in the United States. The series begins with an afternoon careers seminar and networking event, and continues with weekly lunchtime seminars that are taught by experts working in major arenas of environmental law and policy: air, water, land use, hazardous sites/substances, products, and climate change.

This week we looked at the major causes of water pollution and the methods that are being used to address them. We discussed the differences between point sources and nonpoint sources, why transferring water from one place to another matters, how water quality is evaluated, and what might happen to our water supplies in light of climate change.
