Sustainable land use is a vital public policy goal and at Dawson & Associates, you’ll work with experts who wrote or co-wrote many of today’s federal regulations governing land, water and air. For example, our senior advisors led efforts or were actively involved in preparing federal rules on:

  • The National Environmental Policy Act,
  • The Coastal Barrier Resources Act, The Land and Water Conservation Fund,
  • The Migratory Bird Conservation Fund, The Endangered Species Act, and
  • The Clean Water Act.

In many cases, this included the preparation of regulations and policy for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program.

On these and other areas of federal law that significantly impact the sustainable land, wetland and water use, our professionals help clients explain and defend their positions to the right federal leaders. Equally important, Dawson & Associates maintains an extensive knowledge base that allows us to guide you in designing innovative solutions to regulatory concerns.
