EDS prosecutes civil enforcement actions under the Clean Water Act arising out of discharges into regulated wetlands and waterways without a required permit. These enforcement actions typically result in meaningful injunctive relief that restores and/or compensates for the environmental impacts as well as civil penalties that recover economic benefit and help deter future violations.
