Rising 3L Erin Potter shares her experience as 2012 Honors Law Clerk in the EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) at the EPA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

I am assigned to the Water Enforcement Division (WED) which focuses on the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act as it applies to municipalities, industries, and other point sources or public drinking water systems as defined by the statutes.
