US EPA Finalizes New “Waters of the US” Rule
In short, the new rule is designed to help industry professionals and EHS managers more accurately predict which bodies of water are covered under Clean Water Act programs as “waters of the US.” For full coverage of what’s new in the EPA water rule, read more here: EPA Redefines “Waters of the United States.
Effect on Clean Water Act Compliance
This major new rule will affect compliance with major Clean Water Act programs for industry, most notably:
- Oil Discharge Notifications (40 CFR 110);
- Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plans (40 CFR 112);
- NPDES Permitting and Stormwater Discharge Permits (40 CFR 122);
- The “per-industry standards” (40 CFR 405-471); and
- Dredge and Fill Permitting (33 CFR 323).
This new rule is effective on August 28, 2015.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.

The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
