Month: February 2019

The EPA and Department of the Army are moving forward proposing a new definition of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS), publishing an official rule in the Federal Register on Feb. 14. This is the second in a two-step process to review and revise the definition of WOTUS.

On Feb. 27 and 28, the EPA and Army will be holding a public hearing on the proposed WOTUS rule at the Reardon Convention Center in Kansas City, Kansas. For more details about the public hearing, visit the EPA website.

Stream + Wetlands Foundation continues to monitor all activities surrounding the WOTUS rule development. We are hopeful a reasonable WOTUS definition can be achieved soon to help improve predictability for permit applicants and the regulatory agencies.
