May 2017-June 2017
Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD, submitted a declaration commenting on the April 2017 EPA stay of the implementation of its Effluent Limitation Guidelines on Steam-Electric Generating Units. Earthjustice has filed litigation in this matter. Dr. Stanton's declaration stated that any delay in implementing the ELGs will result in harm to the public. When implemented, the ELGs will have the immediate impact of reducing toxins in water and food consumed in the United States. Delayed implementation of ELGs exposes human communities and natural environments to immediate, serious harm.
