Environmental Law

Environmental laws are treaties that regulate the operations between humanity and the natural environment. The purpose of environmental law is to reduce the impact of human activity that endangers the environment, and in turn, endangers humanity. There are many different areas that this topic encompasses, including resource conservation, ecological footprint size, and pollution control. Environmental laws aim to protect those who inhabit the Earth but they have caused a significant amount of controversy.

    Environmental Laws’ Effects on Contamination Cases

    There are many different types of environmental laws, including those that pertain to groundwater contamination and soil. There are many federal statutory regulations that govern water contamination and pollution. Three legislative actions primarily govern this area of environmental law. The first is the Refuse Act, which sets standards for the discharge of pollutants into the water. The Refuse Act was followed by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1948, 33 U.S.C.A. §1251. This water pollution act creates standards to ensure that the each body of water maintains a high level of quality. One action it takes is regulating the level of pollutants allowed in the water. The Clean Water Act (CWA) also has a large impact on the regulation of water pollution. This act forbids any individual from discharging pollutants into a body of water unless it conforms to the provisions set forth in the CWA.

    Law Violations

    The world continues to become more populated, and therefore, environmental laws are enforced to their fullest extent as a method of preventing dangerous pollution from occurring. There are many state and federal laws set in place to regulate the dangers that these toxic torts pose on nature and the natural resources we use.

    Many environmental law cases involve investigating the way that existing resources or pollution are managed. These laws are not only set in place to save the planet but to also protect human life and prevent illness. Many businesses are responsible for the pollution they produce and have the ability to control and minimize their effects on the environment. These companies are also responsible for paying “overages,” which are fees established by the government that penalize polluters for emitting or depositing more waste than they are legally allotted to produce.

    If you or a loved one has been placed at risk because of another individual’s negligent actions that have led to a severe illness or even death, it is important to get the necessary help that you deserve. Many groundwater contamination cases involve a violation of an environmental law. At Miller Stern Lawyers, we have the proven ability to help you obtain a great settlement and verdict. It is important to obtain legal assistance with your situation at your earliest convenience.
