US Supreme Court Agrees to Review Court Case on Logging Road Regulation - On June 25, the US
Supreme Court elected to review the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court to require that owners and operators of logging roads must file Clean Water Act permits as it they are point-sources of pollution.  The decision by the circuit court had effectively overturned more than 35 years of regulatory precedence that considered logging roads as non-point sources of pollution.  States have been managing pollution from silvicultural sources through Non-point Pollution Programs, many of which rely heavily on voluntary mechanisms and state administered regulations, much like the one in Ohio.  You can read more about the Supreme Court decision here.
