Endangered Species Act, Wetlands and Stormwater Regulatory Compliance for Energy & Utilities
Brooke Marcus will serve as an instructor for EUCI's online course, "Endangered Species Act, Wetlands and Stormwater Regulatory Compliance for Energy & Utilities."
Environmental permitting affects many utility projects in the United States. Often, these processes impose delays, constraints and additional costs that are not anticipated by the project team. The goal of this course is to provide attendees with a broad understanding of many of the commonly encountered permitting processes associated with construction, maintenance and operational activities.
During this two-day educational event, Brooke and her fellow instructors will:
- Review utility and energy project activities that are likely to “trigger” environmental regulation under Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and National Environmental Policy Act;
- Discuss the basis and intent of these regulations;
- Identify endangered vs. threatened species, critical habitat designation, consultation process, penalties and more when it comes to the Endangered Species Act;
- Define the National Historic Preservation Act, as well as the actions that may cause adverse effects, potential historic properties, and more;
- Review the Clean Water Act, including Sections 303, 401, 402, and 404;
- Examine nationwide permits in order to understand what they do, where they are used, special considerations, etc.;
- Provide insight on the National Environmental Policy Act, such as its history, regulations, requirements and reforms; and
- Review what’s included in the Coastal Zone Management Act.
