Beveridge & Diamond Hosting WCEE Lunch & Learn on NEPA Challenges
Beveridge & Diamond is hosting a Lunch & Learn in conjunction with the Women's Council on Energy & the Environment (WCEE) on December 12 in a session titled "NEPA Challenges: Lessons from North Dakota." The brown-bag event will take place at our Washington, DC office from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm.
Nessa Coppinger (Principal, Washington, DC) will speak at the event regarding the recently approved Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for North Dakota's Northwest Area Water Supply Project after more than 13 years of litigation in Government of Manitoba v. Zinke. Nessa, who argued this case before the U.S. District Court and the Court of Appeals on behalf of North Dakota, will discuss what she sees as the major takeaways from this case for projects requiring environmental reviews under NEPA and for practitioners handling NEPA challenges.
