Attorney Harry Klodowski Nominated For President Of Air & Waste Management Assn.

Pittsburgh environmental attorney Harry Klodowski with Hull & Klodowski LLC,  has been nominated to run for president of the Air & Waste Management Association, a leading environmental professional organization with more than 5,000 members worldwide.

Klodowski has practiced environmental law since 1979 and has advised companies on environmental compliance questions, negotiated permits and resolved enforcement cases. He began practicing as a litigator in a major Pittsburgh law firm, and developed an environmental practice into a separate department. He was a founding partner of another large Pittsburgh firm, where he managed the environmental law practice, supervising 7 professionals.

Based on almost 30 years experience practicing environmental law and evaluating a variety of technical issues, Klodowski believes companies should pay more attention to their permits. Environmental permits are contracts with the government allowing the company to operate. Permits with unreasonable conditions can create disastrous results and large legal bills to defend enforcement cases. Hiring experts to review a draft permit costs very little and will reduce future costs.

Klodowski is often invited to speak on air pollution regulation, emission trading, air permitting, and other regulatory matters, and to the public on topics such as ozone pollution and environmental protection.

His publications include a chapter in Principles of Environmental Sampling, published by the American Chemical Society, and articles on air pollution, Brownfield development, audit privilege, and measurement error in enforcement situations.

He was active in the management of the Environmental Law Section of the Allegheny County Bar Association from 1992 through 1997 when he was Chairman of the Section and is a former Chair of the Western Pennsylvania Section of the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) and is past chair of A&WMA's Educational Council. He was made a Fellow Member of the AWMA in 1998 in recognition of his professional and civic accomplishments.

The election for A&WMA’s president will be held in June 2014.
