Waters of the United States Proposed Rule Released

Waters of the United States Proposed Rule Released


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on March 25, 2014, released the long-expected Waters of the United States proposed rulemaking. The proposed rule had been at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget for quite a while undergoing review. A 90-day comment period will be provided on the proposed rulemaking, for which the clock will begin ticking once the draft rulemaking is printed in the Federal Register, which could happen any day. In the meantime, the proposed rule, press releases and additional information from U.S. EPA is available at http://www2.epa.gov/uswaters.
