Antidegradation Rulemaking

CLC attorneys and Clinic interns continue the CLC's multiyear involvement in Indiana's antidegradation rulemaking on behalf of client Alliance for the Great Lakes. The rulemaking is required under the Clean Water Act. After more than a year of stakeholder working groups and intense negotiations over the language of the rule, the draft rule issued by the agency is still unlikely to be approved by USEPA. CLC attorneys and interns are currently writing comments in response to the official draft regulations recently issued by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
