Description
This course will begin with an introduction to pollution control, the common law antecedents, and early statutory developments.  The remainder of the course will be devoted to an intensive study of the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act.  The student will become familiar with the substantive provisions of those statutes and will gain a knowledge of how the statutes are implemented by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the relevant state agencies.  In addition, the course will expose the student to scientific and engineering concepts relevant to regulating the "conventional" air and water pollutants.
