In this article, Andrew T. Bockis, an associate in Saul Ewing’s Energy, Environment and Utilities Practice, comments on the likelihood that the U.S. Supreme Court will review a decision from the Third Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals upholding comprehensive pollution restrictions for the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

“When you have a district court and circuit court determining that the EPA was appropriately exercising its discretion within this context, it’s a tough road to get to the Supreme Court to reverse the lower courts,” Andy said in the article. 

Andy also commented on trends in enforcing  the total maximum daily load (TMDL) restrictions.

“The broader market will reward creative individuals and businesses who can demonstrate the removal of nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment through stream restoration projects or other resourceful technologies,” Andy added in the article.  “As states continue their efforts to implement the TMDL, I suspect we’ll see an increase in the use of nutrient credit trading programs.”
