The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) have requested public comments on their proposed rule defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). This regulation determines the extent of federal jurisdiction under the CWA.
Western Growers submitted comments on behalf of our members that criticize the proposed regulations, call for their withdrawal and ask for the agencies to start the process over. Our comments detail flaws in the regulation and outlines changes the agencies need to remedy those flaws.
This page is intended to provide interested parties with links to our one-page summary and accompanying full comments as well as supplemental resources to help better inform anyone who wants to learn more about this proposed rule.
