Protecting water quality: CLF shares clean water act expertise.

FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR, Christopher D'Ovidio, CLF's Director of Rhode Island Advocacy, is teaching a course on the Clean Water Act at a workshop hosted by the Rhode Island Rivers Council. Christopher is training activists and watershed protection groups in using the Clean Water Act as a tool to preserve and improve water quality in Rhode Island's lakes and rivers. In his presentation called "How to Use the Act to Protect Your Watershed," Christopher sheds light on the permitting requirements of the Clean Water Act and legal strategies for forcing the cleanup of dangerous pollution. This is one example of how CLF uses its legal expertise to help communities that are struggling with environmental problems.

This year, Christopher will be joined by representatives of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The workshop will be held in Warwick, RI on December 2, 2004. For more information visit
