Overview of EPA and the Army Corps’ Proposed Rule to Define “Waters of the United States” – IF10125

Overview of EPA and the Army Corps’ Proposed Rule to Define “Waters of the United States” – IF10125 published on

In April 2014, the Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) jointly proposed to amend the existing rules defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). Discharges to waters under CWA jurisdiction, such as the addition of pollutants from factories or sewage treatment plants and the dredging and filling of spoil material through mining or excavation, require a CWA permit. The legal and policy questions regarding the outer geographic limit of CWA jurisdiction and the consequences of restricting that scope have challenged regulators, landowners, developers, and policy makers for over 40 years.
