EPA’s Waters of the US Rule “Blocked” Nationwide
US EPA’s new “Waters of the US Rule” took effect on August 28, 2015, which grants EPA authority to regulate more bodies of water under its Clean Water Act program.
Read about the hotly contested US EPA “WOTUS” rulemaking here.
In August, on the day the new Clean Water entered into effect, a Federal judge issued a temporary injunction to delay enforcement. EPA agreed at that time to hold off enforcing the new requirements, but only in the thirteen US states named in the petition.
To make it clear that the new Stay applies to all US states, the Order issued on Friday, October 9 explicitly states, “The Clean Water Rule is hereby STAYED, nationwide, pending further order of the court.”

Energetic/enthusiastic! Made training enjoyable, understandable and fun!

Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
