The Clean Water Act became law in 1972. It established the regulation of discharges of pollutants into surface waters of the United States, and it set the structure for regulating water quality standards. A large portion of FTN’s work involves helping industries, municipalities, land developers, and others with the NPDES permitting process, wetland delineation and mitigation, stormwater pollution prevention plans, and other CWA requirements. Our firm’s engineers, biologists, and scientists work on CWA issues for our clients virtually every day. State and federal regulatory agencies respect the work that FTN does for its clients because of the long history we have of providing reliable data and effective solutions for regulatory issues.
