Taft attorney Erica Spitzig will be a panelist at the seminar “Groundwater and the Clean Water Act: Where Will SCOTUS Draw the Line?” on Oct. 8. The program is co-hosted by the IndyBar Environmental Law Section and the Indiana Air & Waste Management Association. Spitzig and her co-presenters will provide a preview of the arguments being advanced before the Supreme Court, offer insight into how the court might rule and, most importantly, discuss the practical consequences of the court’s ruling for both regulators and the regulated community.
Spitzig has significant experience representing clients on Clean Water Act matters, and has worked extensively with municipalities on clean water legal and regulatory issues. Her work includes counseling clients on NPDES permitting, compliance, and appeals; stormwater permitting; and enforcement defense. Prior to joining Taft, Spitzig served as Deputy General Counsel for the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) in Washington, DC. She also served as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Ohio, where she litigated Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act enforcement matters and administrative appeals.
