Waste Water Regulation of the Dairy Industry

Waste water generated by California's dairy industry has increasingly become the focus of legislators and regulators across the country. We have worked closely with Western United Dairymen to educate the state's dairy industry about compliance with waste water regulations, including Clean Water Act requirements (e.g. NPDES permit issues). The firm has also defended dairy industry members against Clean Water Act citizens' suits. Our environmental attorneys can provide assistance to dairymen facing investigation by a regulatory agency or a lawsuit filed by citizen groups. Please contact Christopher Campbell for more information on dairy waste water matters.
