EPA faces legal challenges over recent Clean Air Act rule

The Georgia Coalition for Sound Environmental Policy and the Georgia Industry Environmental Coalition are among the groups challenging a rule under the Clean Air Act which requires states to remove civil penalty shields from their pollution reduction plans. The penalty shields are known as affirmative defense provisions, and they apply in only in certain circumstances.

Looking at the Groundwater Use Act

Last time, we began speaking about the Groundwater Use Act of 1972, which established the reasonable use rule when it comes to the use of water within one’s property. The reasonable use rule contrasts with the rule of absolute ownership in that it puts limits on landowners’ use of groundwater beneath their property.

Regulation of groundwater use in Georgia

Water is a precious resource, and water conservation is important to ensure that we don’t put this resource at unnecessary risk. When it comes to conserving water, there are a number of everyday things property owners can do to cut back on their use, such as using high efficiency washers and dryers, reducing the amount of time one keeps the shower on, avoiding running sinks, fixing leaks, avoiding unnecessary or wasteful lawn-watering, collecting rain water for garden-watering, and so on.

Annual list highlights threats to water quality

Water is one of the most important resources we have, and yet threats to water quality are all around us. Every year, the Georgia Water Coalition releases a report highlighting the most serious threats to water quality here in Georgia.  The purpose of publishing an annual list is to highlight for the public the threats to water quality and increase pressure on state and federal lawmakers and regulators to take political action to address these problems.
