Re: Robin Craig

Robin Craig was cited in an article about Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, in which the Sacketts are challenging the EPA's authority to regulate the use of their land under the Clean Water Act. Even if a given parcel (such as the Sackett's property) is not part of the "waters of the United States," activities on that parcel that result in pollution reaching regulated waters could be sufficient to subject such activities to federal regulation, she said. Please note this is a citation of a blog post by Craig on the American College of Environmental Lawyers website.
