EPA Chief Discusses WOTUS Replacement

The Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have announced what they consider a clearer definition for the “Waters of the United States.” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler says the new Navigable Waters Protection Rule replaces the rule implemented during the Obama Administration that caused a lot of confusion…

Wheeler says the new rule provides more clarity and predictability for America’s farmers and landowners…

Wheeler said the new rule defines four categories of what would fall under federal jurisdiction, including territorial seas and traditional navigable waters, tributaries to those waters, certain lakes and ponds, and wetlands adjacent to jurisdictional waters. Additional details are available on EPA’s website.
