Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
The Clean Water Act has led to a vast improvement in the overall quality of industrial point source wastewater, but there is still a significant amount of work to be done. In this program, George Crozier, executive director of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab; attorney David Perry; wastewater superintendent Bhaskar Patel; representatives of International Paper and petroleum refiner Koch Industries; and many others air their views on the controversial topic of compliance with the complex yet effective National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. Cases of loophole exploitation and permit violations are debated.
