In April 2014, the Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) jointly proposed a rule defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). Discharges to waters that are under the jurisdiction of the CWA, 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 and developers, and policy makers for 40 years.
