The Newly Finalized WOTUS Definition and How it Will Affect Your Operations
September 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Environmental Attorney Lisa Bruderly will present “The Newly Finalized WOTUS Definition and How it Will Affect Your Operations” to members of the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation (EMLF) on Thursday, September 21, 2023. The U. S. Supreme Court’s Sackett v. U.S. EPA decision, issued in May 2023, significantly narrowed the definition of “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) and limited the scope of federally-regulated waters and wetlands. A new regulatory definition of WOTUS, based on Sackett, became final on September 8th. During this webinar, Lisa will discuss the Sackett decision, the new regulatory definition of WOTUS, and how these developments will impact the construction of new facilities and operation/maintenance of existing facilities. She will also explore the status of existing challenges to the prior definition of WOTUS and new challenges to the most recently-finalized definition. For more information, click here.
