Almost 50 years with The Clean Water Act: Analyzing Federal & State Enforcement Approaches and Trends

Description

The impact of the Clean Water Act (CWA) on U.S. waterways and surface water bodies has been significant over the last 47 years and one that should not be overlooked. At its passing in 1972, on the heels of an oil slick catching fire on Ohio's Cuyahoga River in June 1969, only 40% of the nation's water was considered safe for fishing and swimming, not to mention drinking and other beneficial uses. Today, the percentage has reached 60% because of regulation.

This Data Insight aims to demonstrate key trends in regulatory enforcement by government type and geography. Bluefield water experts analyze:

  • U.S. Clean Water Act Overview
  • Federal Enforcement Trends
  • State Enforcement Trends
  • Regional Profiles (State Enforcement Actions)
