EBC Young Environmental Professionals Event: EPA Air & Water Regulations, Two Perspectives
March 20, 2012 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The EBC Young Environmental Professional (YEP) Committee is hosting a program on the EPA Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. This program brings together a regulations expert from the EPA and a lawyer with experience handling environmental procedures and disputes. They will provide a brief history and overview of these regulations as well as their own experience working with these regulations from their respective angles. On the one hand, the EPA creates air and water quality regulations to protect our precious resources while on the other lawyers review plans and permits and assist companies in following those regulations. This program will help explain the roles of the EPA and lawyers/consultants and their place in the air and water regulatory process.
The YEP Committee identifies issues of interest and concern to young (and new) environmental professionals. Issues include but are not limited to career and professional skills development, understanding existing and developing legislation and regulations, and networking.
