The Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law will sponsor “The Clean Water Act at 50,” a day-long interdisciplinary symposium that will explore the successes, failures and remaining challenges of the Clean Water Act. The event is Friday, April 8, 2022.
In 1972, responding to widespread and growing concern about the fate of the nation’s waters, Congress enacted the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972, commonly known as the Clean Water Act. This far-reaching federal legislation sought to eliminate the discharge of pollution into waterways and ensure that rivers and streams are swimmable and fishable. Since that time, the nation has made substantial progress in controlling water pollution, particularly from point sources, but many significant water quality changes remain, as do legal questions about the scope and application of federal regulations to activities that can affect water quality and resources.
