Environmental law refers to federal and state statutes aimed at protecting and enhancing the environment, preventing pollution, protecting wildlife, conserving water, and preventing ecological degradation. Because of the expansive nature of these federal and state statutes, it is sometimes difficult for state and federal agencies to provide direct enforcement on every point contained within the statute. Consequently, these statutes often grant to individuals or groups the right to bring legal actions to enforce protections as outlined in the environmental statutes. Therefore, it is not uncommon for a business to be subject to a lawsuit from a nonprofit organization on behalf of a state law regarding an environmental violation.
