Gordon Feinblatt, LLC is pleased to announce the publication of a new LexisNexis Practice Guide on Maryland Environmental Law, prepared by the Firm’s Environmental and Energy Practice Group.
The guide addresses regulatory provisions related to programs overseen by the Maryland Department of the Environment and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and is intended to be a useful resource for practitioners and anyone dealing with environmental issues in Maryland. The guide examines rule making, permitting, and enforcement issues, and includes summaries of certain significant federal environmental laws that are implemented by the State of Maryland, such as the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. The guide also points out areas where the State environmental laws are implemented primarily at the local level.
Chapters discuss air quality, water quality, wetlands, solid waste and sewage disposal, hazardous waste, land remediation, oil control and storage tank management, Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Coastal Bay issues, and natural resource issues. The guide includes over 250 practice tips (strategic points, timing, warnings, and exceptions).
Margaret M. Witherup served as the guide’s primary author, with contributions from Michael C. Powell; Todd R. Chason; David W. Beugelmans; Chastity E.C. Threadcraft; and Paul N. De Santis, Chief of Legal & Regulatory Affairs for Baltimore City Department of Public Works (formerly Counsel in the Firm’s Environmental & Energy Practice).
Print and electronic editions of the book are available for purchase directly though LexisNexis here.
