Water of the United States Webinar and Public Hearings Announced

Steve Watters

Due to the government shutdown, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) had to re-schedule a webinar and public hearings for the proposed new definition of “Waters of the United States.”

A 60-day comment period will begin once the new proposed rule is released in the Federal Register, which is expected to be as early as Feb. 11. For more information on the public comment period, visit here.

The EPA and USACE will host a webinar Feb. 14 to inform the public about the proposed rule and explain major points of the new definition. Register for the webinar here.

Public hearings are scheduled for Feb. 27 and Feb. 28 in Kansas City, Kansas. Find more information about the meetings and the proposed rule here.
