Our Waterfront Law Team’s Poultry Farms Case Experience

Our leading waterfront law team is experienced in defending both sides of environmental citizen’s lawsuits on both the plaintiff’s side and the defendant’s side. Fishermen, companies that operate in the hospitality industry, and waterfront property owners, should monitor cleanliness of water in creeks, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay.  Everyone should monitor cleanliness of groundwater and the amount of groundwater available to support the needs of the community.

Potential poultry farms cases that may arise include, but are not limited to:

  • Pollution of groundwater and surface water
  • Nitrogen runoff
  • Large quantity water usage tapping limited resources and depleting aquifers

 

Recent Poultry Farms Case Victory

Our leading waterfront law team has extensive experience handling poultry farms cases and protecting our clients’ riparian rights. 

Clean Water Act has a citizen suit provision that can be used to force an alleged environmental violator to comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act and/or the State Water Control Act. Our firm used the citizen suit provision of the Clean Water Act to force a polluter to clean up a waterway, after U.S. EPA and Virginia DEQ declined to act.
