Rule Proposed to Clarify Protection Under the CWA for Streams and Wetlands
The EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed a new federal rule that would clarify protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands. The proposed rule, subject to public comment, would make clear which “waters” will be covered by the Act’s pollution prevention and cleanup programs.
The proposal provides that under the CWA, most seasonal and rain-dependent streams are protected. In addition, wetlands near rivers and streams are protected under the act. Here is the link to the official press release from EPA.
