Experienced New Orleans Environmental Attorney
The area of Louisiana environmental law encompasses the federal enactments as set by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Environmental Quality Improvement Act, Environmental Education Act, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These enactments focus to protect the eco-system against actions or business practices that neglect the environmental balance of an area or inflict harm on the environment and its inhabitants in the state of Louisiana and the nation.
The EPA was devised to monitor and analyze the environment, conduct research, and work closely with state and local governments to devise pollution control policies. NEPA has been described as one of Congress's most far reaching environmental legislation ever passed. The basic purpose of NEPA is to force governmental agencies to consider the effect of their decisions on the environment. Louisiana state laws also reflect the same concerns and common law actions that allow adversely affected property owners to seek a judicial remedy for environmental harms and nuisances.
Some of the areas litigated under Louisiana environmental laws include groundwater and drinking water contamination; Brownfields (the redevelopment of contaminated properties); Superfund cases; permitting and compliance matters (including governmental agency challenges); hazardous substance discharges; wetlands; CAFRA, regulatory "takings" matters, and toxic torts.
