CLE Focuses on H2O
This past summer the state of Ohio invested a great deal of resources in the mitigation of toxic algae blooms in some of its lakes. The implications were far-reaching; from impediments to recreation to investigations of causes that reached into the agricultural heart of the state.
Legal professionals working with regulations, growers, and with a general interest in the matter of water pollution prevention and enforcement will enjoy the 3.0 hour Environmental Law CLE seminar on Tuesday, December 20.
Expert faculty presenters are Assistant Attorneys General, Environmental Enforcement Section, Aaron S. Farmer and David H. Dokko; Bill Fischbein, Supervising Attorney, Water Programs, Office of Legal Services, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency; Fank J. Reed Jr., Frost Brown Todd.
