In this second edition of a landmark book, author Robin Craig explores the structural implications for water quality regulation when the primary federal statute for regulating water quality - the Clean Water Act - operates in a context complicated by a variety of constitutional requirements and dictates. After examining the Supremacy Clause, constitutional interstate common law, federal sovereign immunity, the Commerece Clause, the Fifth Amendment's 'taking' clause, the Eleventh Amendment, and the separation of powers principles, Craig concludes that constitutional law has had a more significant effect on the Act's intent to involve citizens in public interest enforcement than on the Act's basic structure of 'cooperative federalism'.This second edition thoroughly updates the first edition, particularly in areas where the Supreme Court has issued significant new decisions. For example, it includes discussions of the Court's 2006 decision in Rapanos v. United States plus the important recent developments in Commerce Clause jurisprudence. Other noteworthy additions include Clean Water Act takings jurisprudence, new discussions of 'increased risk' as a basis for citizen suit standing, and the issue of state citizen suit standing after Massachusetts v. EPA.As Craig reveals, more kinds of constitutional issues have been litigated more often around the Clean Water Act than around any other federal environmental law. Craig argues that environmental constitutional jurisprudence may have progressed to the point where the structure of the Constitution impedes necessary solutions to pressing environmental issues. She concludes by proposing a structural amendment to the Constitution that would restore Congress's vision of citizen participation in environmental law.

The United States is struggling to control its sprawling land use patterns and to develop a unifying strategy of smart growth. The new millennium has brought with it greater popular understanding of this matter, and it is now known that land use law and practice directly address the problems associated with sprawl. In his new book, "Well Grounded, Using Local Land Use Authority to Achieve Smart Growth, " John R. Nolon explores the growing interest in land use law and practice that has been stimulated by the public's increasing disfavor with urban sprawl and its support of smart growth initiatives. The book places land use practice into the national perspective of sprawl and smart growth, by fully describing one of the nation's most complete state land use regimes-the New York system. The New York system is highly textured, and it is typical of the approaches and techniques used in most of the other 49 states. Land use practice is put into its historical perspective by an easy-to-read description of its evolution from 1916 when New York City adopted the nation's first comprehensive zoning ordinance to the present. The book covers a period up to July of 2001, including commentary on Palazzollo v. Rhode Island, the latest regulatory taking case handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court. The book also describes the political history of land use law in New York, including some stunning victories and defeats which explain why land use law is practiced as it is today. For land use novices, the book's glossary defines technical terms and each chapter provides basic definitions of all topics before delving into more complicated applications of them. "Well Grounded" is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, and practical reference for land use officials and professionals, academics, and citizens in all states. .

A steadily increasing appreciation of the value of wetlands and recognition of the factors leading to their loss have spurred the federal government to introduce a series of programs to regulate and manage wetlands. The benefits of these wetland protection programs accrue to the general public, while the largest share of protection costs are borne by private landowners. "Measuring the Benefits of Federal Wetland Programs" describes the goals and mechanisms of federal wetland regulation and management efforts and outlines a framework for measuring the benefits of wetland protection. Scodari explores federal wetland programs and the problems with benefits assessment in this context. Written by a natural resources economist, "Measuring the Benefits of Federal Wetland Programs" is a valuable tool for understanding the quantitative assessment of wetland protection benefits and belongs on the bookshelf of anyone involved in wetland protection or regulation.
