WOTUS Hearing Scheduled

A public hearing on the Trump administration’s proposed rewrite of the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule has been rescheduled for Feb. 27 – 28, in Kansas City, Kansas, to provide interested parties the opportunity to present data, views and information concerning the proposed rule.

The original public hearing for the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers proposal was postponed by the government shutdown last month. The agencies have submitted the proposed rule to the Office of the Federal Register, and it will be published separately in the Federal Register.

The pre-publication WOTUS rule is available but will be replaced with the official version of the notice after it publishes.
