EPA Announces Public Meetings to Discuss the Definition of “Waters of the United States”

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Following the EPA's announced proposal, in July, to withdraw the Obama Administration's "Waters of the US" (WOTUS) rule, the Agency will be working on a new proposal to define the jurisdictional reach of the Clean Water Act. Two weeks ago, the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers announced the extension of the comment period on the proposal and then yesterday announced a series of public meetings throughout the fall to solicit stakeholder input. There will be ten public teleconferences held to solicit recommendations from different sectors for how to redefine the Waters of the US. In addition to the teleconferences there will be one in-person meeting for small entities, held in conjunction with the Small Business Administration. The mining sector meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 31 from 1-3pm EST. 

In addition to IMA-NA's ongoing work on our industry coalition and individual comments, staff will be participating in the meetings and encourages members to participate as well.
