The next edition of NACWA's Hot Topics in Clean Water Law Webinar series will be held on June 20, from 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET. This series of free webinars are designed to provide clean water utilities with the latest insights and analysis on key clean water legal issues and offer a great opportunity to keep up with the most important developments in clean water law. Whether new to the clean water arena or a seasoned professional, this webinar series is for you.

Our June Webinar will place climate change front-and-center.  In January, Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released a new report, Climate Adaptation and Liability: A Legal Primer and Workshop Summary Report, outlining potential areas of liability arising from climate change impacts for several professions and industries, including the clean water sector.  Meanwhile, litigation is pending in several courts around the country focused on the same issues.

On Monday, July 23, from 2:30 – 4:00 pm ET, the Legal Affairs Committee will meet jointly with the Climate & Resiliency Committee, during the NACWA Utility Leadership Conference & 48th Annual Meeting, in Boston, MA.  The meeting will focus on a discussion of the CLF report, the pending litigation, and how the clean water sector can respond.

The Webinar will provide a preview of the committee meeting, and will feature a panel of experienced clean water practitioners discussing the issue.  Our panel will include:

Mickey Conway
Co-Chair, NACWA Legal Affairs Committee
District Manager
Metro Wastewater Reclamation District

Richard Davis
Principal
Beveridge & Diamond PC

Michael Vitris
Associate
