Join the Environmental and Energy Law Program and Sustainable GW for a lunchtime talk with Phillip Musegaas, Vice President of Programs and Litigation, Potomac Riverkeeper Network (PRKN), to discuss the work of the PRKN including recent advocacy and litigation successes in their efforts to protect the Potomac River. He will also address future challenges for the river and will outline different ways, legal and otherwise, for students to contribute to river protection efforts.
About Mr. Musegaas
Mr. Musegaas works with the Network’s Riverkeepers to develop and carry out their clean water advocacy and grassroots campaigns and serves as PRKN’s in-house counsel on all litigation matters. Since joining PRKN in Spring 2015, he has led the team to several critical victories for the Potomac watershed, including federal consent decrees with polluters in Maryland that prevented millions of pounds of pollution from being dumped in the Potomac, and passage of legislation in Virginia to address untreated sewage discharges and leaks from toxic coal ash ponds into the river.
