EPA and Army Take Action to Provide Certainty for the Definition of WOTUS

On November 18, 2021, EPA and the Department of the Army (“the agencies”) announced the signing of a proposed rule to revise the definition of “waters of the United States.” This proposal marks a key milestone in the regulatory process announced in June, 2021. The agencies propose to put back into place the pre-2015 definition of “waters of the United States,” updated to reflect consideration of Supreme Court decisions. This familiar approach to “waters of the United States” would support a stable implementation of “waters of the United States” while the agencies continue to consult with states, tribes, local governments, and a broad array of stakeholders in both the implementation of WOTUS and future regulatory actions.

The agencies are also hosting virtual public hearings in January of 2022.
