Biography

Mary Lynn Coffee has extensive experience providing legal and regulatory advice and counsel with respect to complying with, and permitting under CEQA, NEPA, and state and federal water quality, wetlands, endangered species, and other natural resource protection laws. Her experience includes successfully obtaining and defending, or administratively challenging and moderating the requirements of NEPA/CEQA clearances and environmental permits for public transit, transportation, water, and public infrastructure projects totaling more than $11 billion in capital costs, and for more than 25 different master planned communities encompassing more than 55,000 acres throughout California. She has successfully obtained scores of federal Clean Water Act (CWA) section 404 permits; CWA section 401 water quality certifications, California Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs) for dredge and fill; Cal. Fish and Game Code streambed alternation agreements; state and federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) permits (including section 7 and section 10(a) permits); general and individual CWA section 402 NPDES discharge permits; and WDR requirements and waivers.

Mary Lynn's expertise also includes Natural Community Conservation Plans (NCCPs) and Special Area Management Plans (SAMPs) developed to address state and federal Endangered Species Act and wetlands protection requirements, and Clean Water Act and Porter-Cologne programs to address Section 303(d) impaired water bodies and TMDLs, Individual NPDES permits, General NPDES Phase I and Phase II MS4 permits, and other surface and ground water quality requirements.

In addition, Mary Lynn is at the forefront in interpreting, creating and implementing permitting and compliance programs for, and engaging in legislative, policy, and regulatory initiatives to respond to, ever-changing requirements imposed on public agencies and private entities under CEQA and NEPA, the state and federal Endangered Species Acts, Porter-Cologne and federal Clean Water Act, and other surface and storm water quality mandates. Most recently, such work has included in-depth legal analysis of increasingly stringent NEPA and CEQA requirements for assessing and considering adverse project impacts of greenhouse gas emissions, storm water runoff pollutants, and storm water hydromodification, and providing assistance to technical teams developing state-of-the-art methodologies for assessing impacts and mitigation measure efficacy in response to evolving regulatory requirements.
