  • SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE - COMMENT PERIOD EXTENSION FOR THE CLEAN WATER ACT PROPOSED RULE FOR DEFINITION OF WATERS OF THE U.S.

    Expiration date: 10/20/2014

    On 21 April 2014, the USEPA and the Corps of Engineers (Corps) published for public comment a proposed rule defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA), in light of the U.S. Supreme Court cases in U.S. v. Riverside Bayview, Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (SWANCC), and Rapanos v. United States (Rapanos). The proposed rule was developed to enhance protection for the nation’s public health and aquatic resources, and increase CWA program predictability and consistency by increasing clarity as to the scope of “waters of the United States” protected under the Act. The comment period was originally scheduled to end on July 21, 2014. This notice is to announce that the comment period has been extended through October 20, 2014. Comments must be received on or before October 20, 2014.
