Waters Advocacy Coalition implores Army Corps of Engineers to lift moratorium on AJDs

The Waters Advocacy Coalition, comprised of 45 organizations from a broad cross-section of the economy, issued a letter on July 13 urging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to lift its moratorium on new approved jurisdictional determinations (AJDs) following the Supreme Court’s Sackett v. EPA ruling.

“The Corps’ ongoing refusal to issue AJDs is creating significant uncertainty for job creators, food producers, housing developers and other important sectors of the national economy,” the coalition said in the letter.

“Together, the lack of guidance from the Agencies and the Corps’ refusal to issue AJDs present significant barriers to growing a thriving economy and building strong infrastructure.”
