Fall Lecture Series: Leonard Miller – A Personal Overview of U.S. Water Pollution Control from a Co-Founder of the EPA

  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT Room 1-150 US (map)

Join us for our first Lecture Series this Fall! The lecture will provide an overview of the historical evolution of the US EPA, and the regulation of wastewater in the United States. While discussing regulation development from the 60’s until now, Len Miller will touch on relevant policy/engineering issues, and present some short “case histories” – all with a little humor and some ideas of what it is like to help grow the environmental regulations.

Leonard A. Miller is a 2015 Advanced Leadership Fellow at the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative. He is also Senior Counsel to the international law firm Sullivan & Worcester and Senior Advisor to Dawson & Associates, a consulting firm providing assistance on U.S. water issues. He has consistently been ranked as one of the leading environmental lawyers in the U.S. Mr. Miller was one of the founding members of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), where, among other things, he developed the U.S. national pollutant discharge elimination system and headed the U.S. water permit and enforcement programs. Mr. Miller has a BA from Brandeis University and a JD from the Harvard Law School.
