Fall 2021
RPD952  A  WETLANDS REGULATION AND PERMITTING

Course Description
This course explores how the federal government regulates impacts to wetlands and other waters associated with real property development. In particular, the course will focus on how to determine whether a potential project is regulated under the Clean Water Act, how to obtain authorizations from the government for impacts to wetlands and waters and the standards that guide the government’s permitting decisions, and how to navigate common obstacles in the permitting process. This class will focus primarily on federal law and regulations but will also address the State of Florida’s recent assumption of the Clean Water Act section 404 permitting program, which could yield important lessons nationwide as other states consider assuming the 404 program. (1 credit).
