Albert Slap

Albert Slap is a nationally recognized environmental attorney and law professor.

He was counsel to Biscayne Bay Waterkeeper in the first lawsuit in the nation to force local government (Miami-Dade County) to make its critical public infrastructure climate ready. Slap has used the Clean Water Act and other laws to force re-investment in aging and polluting infrastructure. His cases against Philadelphia and Cincinnati brought billions of dollars of new wastewater investments to those cities and tens of thousands of construction jobs.

In 2012, for Friends of the Everglades, Slap forced a historic $880 million settlement between the EPA, the State of Florida and the South Florida Water Management District to expand pollution filter marshes below Big Sugar and above Everglades National Park. From 2004-2009, Slap was Director of The Nature Conservancy’s Colorado River Program.

In 2014, Slap was the recipient of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas “Defender of the Everglades” Award. Slap resides in Snowmass, CO.
