The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army (Army) are delivering on the President’s agenda by proposing a new definition for waters of the U.S. The agencies’ proposal would end years of uncertainty over where federal jurisdiction begins and ends. It would clarify the role of our state and tribal partners — those closest to and most knowledgeable about their own waters — and help them more effectively manage their land and water resources. Our new proposal would make it easier to understand where the Clean Water Act applies — and where it doesn’t.
