What All The Fuss Isn't About: The Eighth Circuit's Misapprehension Of Apa Purposes In Hawkes Co. V. U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers, Marnee Rand 2016 Boston College Law School

What All The Fuss Isn't About: The Eighth Circuit's Misapprehension Of Apa Purposes In Hawkes Co. V. U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers, Marnee Rand

Boston College Law Review

On April 10, 2015, in Hawkes Co. v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit held that a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers jurisdictional determination made pursuant to the Clean Water Act is subject to judicial review as final agency action under the Administrative Procedure Act. Jurisdictional determinations are threshold decisions of the Corps assessing whether a piece of land is subject to regulation under the Clean Water Act. The Eighth Circuit’s decision contradicts a previous decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which ...

Emerging Contaminants In Virginia, Peter L. deFur, Laura E. Williams, Sarah D. Sanford 2016 College of William & Mary Law School

Emerging Contaminants In Virginia, Peter L. Defur, Laura E. Williams, Sarah D. Sanford

William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review

This Article summarizes the rise of emerging contaminants in waterways in Virginia and nationwide, and how they affect ecological and human health. First, we review the scientific discovery of chemicals that alter hormone systems, reproductive and developmental processes and how these were discovered in waterways. We go on to explain the current state of emerging contaminant regulations, noting that few states have a clear understanding of what chemicals are discharged into surface waters. The Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) has no national effort in this area, despite congressional interest and action. Finally, we make recommendations for future emerging contaminant control and ...


A Texas Takings Trap: How The Court In Edwards Aquifer Authority V. Bragg Fell Into A Dangerous Pitfall Of Takings Jurisprudence, Joseph Belza 2016 Boston College Law School

A Texas Takings Trap: How The Court In Edwards Aquifer Authority V. Bragg Fell Into A Dangerous Pitfall Of Takings Jurisprudence, Joseph Belza

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In Edwards Aquifer Authority v. Bragg, the Court of Appeals of Texas, San Antonio held that the Edwards Aquifer Authority’s water well permitting plan amounted to a compensable taking of a pecan farmer’s private property. The court determined that the water regulation was so onerous that it was analogous to physical seizure of property by eminent domain. In its analysis, however, the court fatally misapplied the multi-part Penn Central test. The court implicitly framed the four Penn Central factors as elements instead of utilizing a more appropriate holistic balancing test. Framing the test in such a way improperly ...

Buried Beneath The Legislation It Gave Rise To: The Significance Of Woodruff V. North Bloomfield Gravel Mining Co., Kaitlin N. Vigars

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In the mid 1800’s, the California gold rush ushered in a new era of industry to the farming communities of the Sacramento Valley. This influx of people, capital, and technological innovation also brought with it significant pollution that nearly destroyed the agricultural value of the region. After decades of being inundated with debris cast off by the gold mining encampments operating upstream, local landowner Edward Woodruff brought suit seeking to enjoin the mining companies from discarding their debris into the area’s waterways. The decision that followed brought gold mining in the region to a halt and set the ...
