    EPA Extends Comment Period on WOTUS Rule

    Read More

    The US Environmental Protection Agency has extended for the second time the public comment period on its controversial proposed rule to define the scope of Waters of the United States under Clean Water Act jurisdiction.  The new deadline for public comment is November 14, 2014.  

    The proposed rule, published on April 21, would give the agency greater authority to regulate water bodies such as ponds, streams, canals and ditches.   The extension comes as the EPA's Scientific Advisory Board is finalizing a report on the connectivity of these water bodies.
