The Plum Creek Distinguished Lecture Series hosted a seminar on the impacts of a Supreme Court Case to logging roads and the Clean Water Act. Panelists, including representatives from both petitioners and plaintiffs sides of the case, Montana DEQ, US Forest Service, Plum Creek Timber Company, and The University of Montana School of Law, provided an overview of the case and its potential impacts. Nearly 160 participants joined in the conversation to understand how this complex court case might address stormwater runoff from logging roads. Read coverage of the event in the Missoulian for more details.
