Comment Period for WOTUS Rule Withdrawal Extended

pondEPA and the Army Corps of Engineers are extending the comment period by 30 days for a proposed rule that will roll back the flawed 2015 “waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) definition and replace it with the status quo definition that has been used to make Clean Water Act jurisdictional determinations since 1986.

Going back to the well-established 1986 definition will allow the agencies to provide continuity and clarity to builders and developers while deliberating on a new definition.

Comments are now due Sept. 27 and can be filed online at

For additional information, contact Owen McDonough or Tom Ward.
