BHA Podcast & Blast, Ep. 46: Blan Holman, Southern Environmental Law Center

Epic floods due to the filling and draining of wetlands, duck numbers falling, fisheries collapsing, federal flood insurance $25 billion in debt, water pollution at levels not seen since the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972 – and all this before the recent floods in the Midwest. The common denominator is our failure to protect U.S. wetlands and rivers and streams. BHA has worked for years as part of a collaborative effort to restore clarity to the Clean Water Act. Yet with the administration considering a revised rule eliminating wetlands and stream protections under the Clean Water Act – so that the act no longer would protect at least half of America’s wetlands relied upon by big game, waterfowl and fish and would abolish protections for intermittent and ephemeral streams created after rainfall – these are difficult times for anyone who is paying attention to the plight of our waters. Hal talks to Blan Holman, a lawyer at the Southern Environmental Law Center who specializes in water law, to try and make sense of it all. What does the future hold? Listen, if you will, to one of the most important podcasts we've ever recorded, and then take action in support of our clean waters and outdoor traditions.
