Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar training will discuss how to navigate the complex new definition of “Waters of the United States (WOTUS)”. The Instructor will describe the procedures for identifying the effluent limitations, water quality standards and other requirements applicable to discharges. Participants will learn how to identify and manage the Clean Water Act requirements at the earliest stages of project development. They will also understand formation of the team resources needed to manage a water dependent project.

Why Should You Attend:

On the last Friday of August 2015, the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers issued its controversial Clean Water Rule, which creates a new, extraordinarily expansive definition of “waters of the United States (WOTUS).”

These new rules are complex and vast, affecting 2 million miles of streams and 20 million acres of wetlands. They’ve been the subject of both a massive public relations campaign on the part of the Environmental Protection Agency as well as a massive amount of public response, as evidenced by the volume of comments submitted to the docket. As a result, the proposal has attracted the highest level of attention from the incoming 114th Congress, which has already developed a list of EPA regulations worthy of greater scrutiny. Will the WOTUS rule survive Congress? If so, what will the impacts to the regulated community be?

This webinar describes the recent changes, provide an overview of the origin of these changes, provide a critique of these changes and discuss effects of implementation, and present the current challenges in light of the legal background and current political environment.
