The final guidance document on the issuance of administrative orders under section 311(c) and (e) of the Clean Water Act ('CWA'), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 ('OPA') provides legal authority for the issuance of administrative orders for the cleanup and prevention of discharges and threatened discharges of oil and hazardous substances into navigable waters, adjoining shorelines, and certain other areas. While the guidance document discusses the separate use of each order authority, it recommends joint use of the section 311(c) and (e) enforcement authorities whenever possible because of broader reach of orders issued under both authorities.
