Chuck Wehland focuses his practice on environmental law and climate change, helping clients develop environmental management systems and achieve effective resolutions of enforcement and cleanup issues. He works on matters involving greenhouse gas emission from electric power plants, Clean Air Act permits, and the cleanup of contaminated drinking water wells and river sediments. He also defends clients against criminal and civil government enforcement proceedings. In transactions, Chuck is well-versed in negotiating agreements and directing due diligence.
Chuck works on Clean Air Act enforcement and compliance issues for clients including Dayton Power & Light, Midwest Generation, and Oklahoma Gas & Electric Company, including new source review permit issues and best available retrofit technology (BART) determinations. He has defended clients against government enforcement initiatives directed at electric utilities, petroleum refineries, and sulfuric acid plants. These enforcement initiatives frequently involve assistance with responding to government requests for information. Chuck also works with clients to develop environmental management systems that add value to the company's operations. In one case, he helped determine the best approach for generating valuable credits in voluntary carbon markets. In another case, he helped develop a risk-based cleanup for PCBs in creek sediments and residential yards. Representative clients include ALON USA, ARAMARK, Bridgestone Americas, Calcasieu Refining, CenterPoint Energy, LaSalle Investment Management, Molex, Morgan Stanley, PotashCorp, Rhodia, and Xcel Energy.
