County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund & the Future of the Clean Water Act

February 18, 2020 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3037

County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund examines whether the Clean Water Act requires a permit when pollutants originate from a point source but are conveyed to navigable waters by a non-point source, such as groundwater. The outcome of the case could affect longstanding EPA policy related to the implementation of the Clean Water Act. Elbert Lin, a partner at Hunton, Andrews, Kurth, argued the case on behalf of County of Maui. Mr. Lin will be joined by Professor Michelle Nowlin, who co-authored an amicus brief on behalf of Hawaii Wildlife Fund. Lunch will be served.
