The purpose of the workshop
Initially authorized in response to egregious pollution
from wastewater treatment plants and major
industrial sources, the Clean Water Act has catalyzed
the cleanup of many of our nation’s waters. The
outlook for continuing progress under the Clean
Water Act, however, has been diminished in the
face of modern pollutants, aging infrastructure, the
Act’s limited tools to address nonpoint sources, and
increasing stresses from unregulated development,
population growth, and climate change. Concerns
about the Clean Water Act limits prompted
the Water Environment Federation and Duke
University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental
Policy Solutions along with The Johnson Foundation
at Wingspread to convene a facilitated three-day
workshop about the state of the Clean Water Act.
