Richard S. Davis has practiced almost exclusively under the federal Clean Water Act and its state analogues since he joined Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. in 1981. Chairing or co-chairing the firm’s Clean Water Practice Group for more than 15 years, Mr. Davis helps to direct one of the most innovative and dynamic clean water practices in the United States. His individual practice includes active representation of major clean water agencies on issues including permitting, TMDLs, CSO and other enforcement defense, and regulatory planning to take advantage of innovations such as water quality trading and EPA’s Green Infrastructure initiative. Mr. Davis also represents individual industrial dischargers as well as industry groups, including groups representing the nation’s airlines and manufacturers of recreational vessels. As state and federal regulatory programs continue to reach out to address these and other industries in novel and provocative ways, his practice will continue to present opportunities to shape regulatory programs to meet the needs of important public and private enterprises.
