Bina Reddy Speaking in ACC Webinar on Mitigating Enforcement Risks from Citizen Environmental Monitoring and Crowdsourced Data
Beveridge & Diamond is pleased to sponsor the webcast titled "I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me – How to Mitigate Enforcement Risks from U.S. Citizen Environmental Monitoring and Crowdsourced Data," presented in conjunction with Beveridge & Diamond's sponsorship of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)'s Environmental & Sustainability Committee. The webcast will take place on December 4, 2018, at 1:00 PM EST.
With recent technological advances, citizens can use low-cost handheld sensors to monitor for a wide range of environmental pollutants in their communities, and share the collected data instantaneously. U.S. EPA and many states encourage citizen monitoring to help fill data gaps, but have not articulated clear standards for how to use or interpret this data. Principal Bina Reddy (Austin) will provide an overview of why citizen monitoring has dramatically increased and how it is being used, current federal and state programs and guidance, and suggest concrete actions to mitigate potential enforcement risks in this quickly changing landscape.
