NWEA Files Friend-of-the-Court Brief on Logging Roads Case

The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard arguments on whether industrial logging roads should have Clean Water Act permits like other pollution discharge sources.  After all, we require a wide range of activities that eventually funnel pollution through a pipe or ditch to be covered by stormwater permits.  To support this case, NWEA filed an amicus brief that chronicles the history of Oregon’s failure to protect  water quality from logging from 1998 to the present.
