Innovations in Managing Western Water: New Approaches for Balancing Environmental, Social and Economic Outcomes (Martz Summer Conference, June 11-12)

Many aspects of western water allocation and management are the product of independent and uncoordinated actions, several occurring a century or more ago. However, in this modern era of water scarcity, it is increasingly acknowledged that more coordinated and deliberate decision-making is necessary for effectively balancing environmental, social, and economic objectives. In recent years, a variety of forums, processes, and tools have emerged to better manage the connections between regions, sectors, and publics linked by shared water systems. In this event, we explore the cutting edge efforts, the latest points of contention, and the opportunities for further progress.

Bucking White Stallion: Why Epa Should Have Prohibited Cost Considerations From Clean Air Act Egu Regulatory Designations And Why The D.C. Circuit Would Have Upheld It, Samuel Worth 2015 Boston College Law School

Bucking White Stallion: Why Epa Should Have Prohibited Cost Considerations From Clean Air Act Egu Regulatory Designations And Why The D.C. Circuit Would Have Upheld It, Samuel Worth

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2012 the Environmental Protection Agency issued a Final Rule subjecting coal and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units, or EGUs, to EPA regulation under section 112 of the Clean Air Act, officially listing them as “source-categories” of Hazardous Air Pollutant, or HAP, emissions. Additionally, the agency held that situation-specific factors, such as implementation and compliance costs, should not be considered when designating EGUs for regulation. In White Stallion Energy Center, LLC v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the CAA does not require EPA to consider implementation ...

Shell Gulf Of Mexico, Inc. V. Center For Biological Diversity, Nick VandenBos 2015 University of Montana School of Law

Shell Gulf Of Mexico, Inc. V. Center For Biological Diversity, Nick Vandenbos

Public Land and Resources Law Review

In an attempt to stave off what it saw as impending litigation, Shell Gulf of Mexico, Inc. filed suit under the Declaratory Judgment Act against a range of environmental groups opposed to Shell’s oil exploration in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas of Alaska’s Arctic Coast. Shell requested a declaratory judgment that its oil spill response plans, as approved by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, did not violate the Administrative Procedures Act. Although noting the novelty of Shell’s argument, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit concluded the district court had erred in ...


What About Whitman?: The Supreme Court’S Decision In Epa V. Homer To Authorize Cost Consideration In Environmental Regulation Contradicts Its Own Precedent, Devon Applegate 2015 Boston College Law School

What About Whitman?: The Supreme Court’S Decision In Epa V. Homer To Authorize Cost Consideration In Environmental Regulation Contradicts Its Own Precedent, Devon Applegate

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2011, in response to the ongoing problem of interstate air pollution, EPA promulgated the Transport Rule to restrict emissions in upwind states in order to achieve attainment of certain national ambient air quality standards in downwind states. State and local governments and industry and labor groups, unhappy with EPA’s process of determining which states would be regulated under the Transport Rule, challenged the rule on the grounds that EPA had exceeded its authority under the Clean Air Act. In 2014, in EPA v. EME Homer City Generation, L.P., the Supreme Court of the United States held that ...


A “Green” Lining: Closing The Door On Environmental Litigants In Bellon Could Lead To More Successful Environmental Challenges In The Future, Brian Bieschke 2015 Boston College Law School

A “Green” Lining: Closing The Door On Environmental Litigants In Bellon Could Lead To More Successful Environmental Challenges In The Future, Brian Bieschke

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In Washington Environmental Council v. Bellon, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit addressed the issue of Article III standing with respect to environmental organizations filing suit under the Clean Air Act. The organizations alleged that Washington state agencies were required to regulate the greenhouse gas emissions of five oil refineries, and that the agencies’ failure to do so caused particularized injuries to plaintiffs’ health and recreational enjoyment because of the impacts of those greenhouse gas emissions on climate change. Applying a three-pronged test requiring plaintiffs to establish injury in fact, causality, and redressability, the court determined ...

Dormant Commerce Clause Review: Why The Ninth Circuit Decision In Corey Strayed From Precedent And What The Supreme Court Could Have Done About It, Hwi Harold Lee

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2007, the California state legislature enacted the Low-Carbon Fuel Standard, or LCFS, limiting carbon emissions from transport fuels throughout the fuels’ entire “lifecycle,” by assigning “carbon intensity” scores to each fuel product. These scores are calculated using a variety of measurements, including the amount of carbon emitted while producing the fuels and in transporting them to California. Out-of-state fuel suppliers challenged that the LCFS places an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce because their products would inevitably have higher carbon intensity scores than their in-state counterparts, based merely on the distance traveled. The dispute reached the U.S. Court of ...


Socialized Is Not A Dirty Word: The Only Just And Reasonable Method For Assigning The Costs Of High-Voltage Interstate Transmission Lines Is To Socialize Them, Jordan A. Smith 2015 Boston College Law School

Socialized Is Not A Dirty Word: The Only Just And Reasonable Method For Assigning The Costs Of High-Voltage Interstate Transmission Lines Is To Socialize Them, Jordan A. Smith

Boston College Law Review

Following the federal government’s requirement that electric utilities must allow other power generators to use their transmission lines, investment in the United States electric grid has faltered. The effects of underinvestment in the grid have limited the proper function of competitive energy markets and stifled investment in renewable energy sources. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) has allowed states belonging to planning regions that coordinate transmission development to create multiple methods for allocating the costs of new facilities crossing state lines. Many of these methods use models to forecast which customers in each state benefit from the facility, and ...

With Federal Money Up For Grabs And The Clean Energy Dream Within Reach, The Ninth Circuit Rubber Stamps The Central District’S Flawed Judgment In Western Watershed Project V. Salazar: Should Nepa Jurisprudence Be Modified?, Erik Faussner 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

With Federal Money Up For Grabs And The Clean Energy Dream Within Reach, The Ninth Circuit Rubber Stamps The Central District’S Flawed Judgment In Western Watershed Project V. Salazar: Should Nepa Jurisprudence Be Modified?, Erik Faussner

Golden Gate University Law Review

As a clean-energy leader, California has been rapidly developing clean-energy infrastructure to meet its goal of supplying 33% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. The federal government has also been an active participant in this push for a clean-energy future, creating an atmosphere where big projects can thrive on federal land with help from the federal purse. With support from the state and federal governments, large-scale clean-energy projects will become commonplace in the California desert. The Southwest is an ideal place for solar development because of its reliably sunny weather. Unfortunately, the rapid expansion of clean-energy infrastructure has ...
