Case Summary Citation
133 S.Ct. 1326
In Decker v. Northwest Environmental Defense Center(“Decker”), the United States Supreme Court considered whether the Clean Water Act (“CWA”) and its implementing regulations require states and industry to obtain permits for stormwater runoff from ditches and culverts built as part of logging roads. The Court determined that the Rule exempts discharges of “channeled stormwater” from logging roads under the CWA.
