Clean Water Act: New Rule defining “Waters of the United States”
Event Description and Agenda:
On August 28th, the new rules for the Clean Water Act (CWA) defining "Waters of the United States" (WOTUS) will go into effect. Their enactment will be greeted by several lawsuits, already filed. Although the stated aim of the new regulations is to clarify ambiguous aspects of the original Act, many believe the new provisions add unnecessary and unwelcome complexity, change and expansion to the jurisdiction of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers.
This presentation will provide an overview of the new CWA Rule. It will discuss the key changes in the Rule, various perspectives on the Rule, potential changes to scope of Corps jurisdiction, and potential implications for industry practices in obtaining permits under the CWA.
