EPA and Army Propose New "Waters of the United States" Definition
EPA and the Army are proposing a new definition of "waters of the United States" that clarifies federal authority under the Clean Water Act. This new definition, when finalized, would replace the 2015 definition. The agencies will take comment on the proposal for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. EPA and the Army will also hold an informational webcast on 10 January 2019, and will host a listening session on the proposed rule in Kansas City, KS, on 23 January 2019. When published, the link to the Federal Register official version of the proposed definition will be found in the "Regulatory Watch" section of Fedcenter.gov.
