Wetlands and Stormwater
Maintaining water quality is a key concern confronting many developments today, and SPR has extensive experience navigating the numerous federal, state, and local statutes and regulations which govern wetlands and water quality issues, including stormwater. Whether obtaining coverage under a general stormwater permit for a construction site, or evaluating a proposed project’s potential impacts on tidal or freshwater wetlands, SPR attorneys are deeply knowledgeable in this area, and have substantial experience working with the relevant governmental agencies.
