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.
