Understand the Key Requirements of NEPA, ESA, CWA, CAA & NHPA to Avoid Environmental Compliance Pitfalls

Many federal agency and private sector projects in energy, transportation, and construction, to name a few, are delayed substantially by poor compliance with key federal environmental laws, such as NEPA, ESA, CWA, CAA, and NHPA. Litigation involving compliance is a frequent occurrence – and often leads to lengthy delays in project approvals. In such a scenario, how do you ensure proper compliance and avoid costly project delays?

You’ll figure that out in this information-packed webinar by Michael D. Smith, Ph.D., one of the nation’s leading environmental compliance experts and a long-time consultant to federal agencies and industry. Smith will provide expert insights on the key compliance requirements of the five most important federal environmental permitting laws, teach you the key strategies for complying in the most efficient and defensible manner, and explain the important role played by federal courts in reviewing environmental compliance.

You will learn how to: prepare defensible environmental analyses, develop strategies to coordinate environmental review of projects that trigger multiple federal environmental laws, and respond to recent administrative and legislative initiatives to increase the efficiency of the environmental permitting process.

After attending this webinar, you will understand the key legal and compliance requirements of NEPA, ESA, CWA, CAA, and the NHPA, and will be able to identify and avoid federal environmental compliance pitfalls.
