great slides and cases

I have an Environmental Certificate from a top Enviro Law School, and litigated CWA Citizen Suits for 12 years, so I can say with certainty that Mr. Hastings knows this area well. He does an excellent job of explaining a highly complex topic. For me it was a good “refresher” on some areas of the CWA that were outside the scope of my practice. Highly recommend as a primer for those interested in clean water issues.
