This article addresses selected developments in environmental law occurring between the publication of the 1992 Annual Survey of Virginia Law1 and June 24, 1994. Due to significant federal litigation since publication of the 1992 Survey, this article places primary emphasis on those developments which most significantly affect potential liabilities under state and federal environmental laws. This article addresses developments in the federal and state legislative and regulatory schemes, and case law from Virginia state courts, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, the United States Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia and Fourth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.
