EPA Releases Proposed Rule on Clean Water Act Jurisdiction
Posted on March 25, 2014
Today EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers released its long-anticipated draft rule on the jurisdiction of Clean Water Act. See this earlier post outlining the issue. The proposed rule is available at EPA’s website, as is a fact sheet and a video by EPA administrator Gina McCarthy introducing the rule. According to McCarthy, the rule does not expand the reach of the Act but merely clarifies the waters to which it applies. More to come on this rule.
