IMA-NA Comments on the new WOTUS rule

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Thursday, April 18, 2019

Washington, DC—The Industrial Minerals Association – North America (IMA-NA) released the following statement after submitting comments on the new definition for the “waters of the United States (WOTUS) by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps). The comment period concluded on Monday, April 15, 2019.

“We are happy to see the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers move closer to finalizing a commonsense definition of “waters of the United States” that honors the congressional intent of cooperative federalism,” said Vice President Ariel Hill-Davis.  “Along with other stakeholders, IMA-NA supports the Administration’s push to provide much needed clarity around WOTUS and is looking forward to seeing how the comments are incorporated in the final proposal.”

As we said in previous statements, “We remain committed to working with the Administration to ensure the final adopted proposal provides long-lasting clarity on the scope of federal jurisdiction according to the intentions of the Clean Water Act.” “Furthermore,” continued Ms. Hill-Davis, “IMA-NA believes clear rules will ensure our nation has clean water and we are grateful for the opportunity to engage in a rulemaking of such importance.”
