When dealing with environmental issues there are numerous federal regulations and guidelines that are aimed at protecting the environment and the people who live in it.  Some of those areas are as follows:

  • Clean Air Act (CAA)
  • Clean Water Act (CWA)
  • Oil Pollution Act (OPA)
  • Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
  • Endangered Species Act (ESA)
  • National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
  • Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA)
  • Atomic Energy Act (AEC)
  • Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA)

Unfortunately, many companies fail to follow these rules and regulations and instead put the environment and its people in danger.  We here at Elliott & Ritch have litigated various cases against companies and manufactures for failing to follow certain environmental guidelines and thereby putting people in danger.  ​​
