Environmental attorney sounds off on smelly stormwater

"Rather quietly, there's a major storm brewing over stormwater -- how to regulate it, who does the regulating and on what criteria"

Writing in NJ Spotlight today,veteran New Jersey environmental attorney R. William Potter of the Princeton-based law firm Potter and Dickson, provides his opinion on why stormwater runoff continues to add to New Jersey's highly polluted waterways and how the challenge of correcting the problem falls primarily to local zoning boards, followed by the courts and the state Department of Environmental Protection. Credit: Amanda Brown

If that description sounds too dry, the title of Mr. Potter's essay might activate your attention: If it looks and smells like sewage, it  could be stormwater.
