Houma attorneys recently defended Houma against a $24 million dollar lawsuit filed against the city for a violation of the Federal Clean Water Act. The plaintiffs, an environmental group, alleged that a 3-mile section of levee was constructed without a permit required to dredge soil and fill in areas of sensitive wetland in violation of the law. A settlement was reached, which requires Houma to maintain a newly-built wetland for a period of five years.
