The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corp of Engineers will hold a webinar on Thursday, August 27 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT (4:00 to 5:00 p.m. PDT) to provide more details about the final Clean Water Rule. This webinar will provide a review of the final rule, answer some commonly asked questions, and discuss what to expect as the rule is implemented.
The EPA and the Army Corp signed the Clean Water Rule on May 27, 2015, to protect the streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation’s water resources from pollution and degradation. The final rule is effective August 28, 2015.
Western Growers identified a number of serious concerns when the proposed rule was issued. Although the final iteration addressed some of our concerns, we continue to oppose the now-final rule and hope Congress intervenes to at least delay implementation.
