UPDATE: Have a comment on the proposed Waters of the United States rule? Your opportunity to navigate the rule and provide comment has been extended.
The U.S. EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have agreed to extend the public comment period for the proposed rule for the definition of "Waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act. The comment period for the proposed rule was originally slated to end on July 21, 2014. However, after receiving feedback from stakeholders over the complexity of the issues, the agencies have agreed to extend the comment period through October 20, 2014.
