The firm served as lead counsel to City of Atlanta regarding National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (“NPDES”) permitting and enforcement issues for the City’s water reclamation centers and combined sewer overflow facilities and the related collection and transmission system.  Representation also included negotiating a federal Consent Decree with the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Justice, and the State of Georgia to settle a citizen suit filed by a citizen activist group. Recently was allowed by the federal district court to join extraterritorial users of the City's water system to the pending Consent Decree matter when the City was faced with a taking of the City's water assets. All disputes regarding service area and assets will now be resolved under the jurisdiction of the federal court, rather than the state court.
