Karen Bennett to Join Roundtable on Conflicting Environmental Laws at NACWA Seminar

Washington, D.C. (October 7, 2021) – Washington, D.C. Partner Karen C. Bennett will join a roundtable discussion addressing conflicting environmental laws and regulations at the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) Law & Enforcement Seminar, hosted at Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston on November 18 at 2:00 p.m. 

This informative event will feature experts discussing ways in which clean water utilities can try to address situations where continued attempts to meet environmental goals may lead to other environmental challenges and conflicts between existing laws and regulations. This includes addressing climate change and resiliency, Superfund cleanups, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination, and stringent temperature criteria. The discussion will also be accessible virtually and CLE credits will be available.  

NACWA is a leading organization in legislative, regulatory, and legal advocacy on the full spectrum of clean water issues, as well as a top technical resource for water management, sustainability, and ecosystem protection interests. It represents public wastewater and stormwater agencies of all sizes nationwide. 

Ms. Bennett is co-chair of Lewis Brisbois' Sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Practice, Environment, Land, & Natural Resources Law Practice, Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice, and the firm's Government Relations Group. She works with clients to resolve regulatory problems, focusing primarily on permitting, compliance, litigation, and legislative and regulatory policy.
