USEPA Extends Waters of the United States Comment Deadline
October 7, 2014
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has, for a second time, extended the public comment deadline associated with its proposed rule to redefine “waters of the United States” and related terms for purposes of various federal Clean Water Act programs. USEPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers initiated the joint rulemaking effort this past spring. Comments are now due on Friday, November 14, 2014.
