EPA's WOTUS Replacement On the Way
Identify your responsibilities under the many US EPA water programs that impact industrial facilities—from oil spill reporting to NPDES permits, stormwater regulations, and more. The Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act Regulations Online Course is open for enrollment now!
According to the most recent regulatory Agenda (Spring 2018), EPA initially planned to release the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for its WOTUS replacement in August 2018 and promulgate a Final Rule by September 2019.
A parallel WOTUS rulemaking—which will restore the Clean Water Act definition of “Waters of the United States” to its pre-2015 form—is slated for November 2018.
Last month, a Texas District Court judge presiding over the case Texas v. EPA (a challenge to EPA’s new 2015 WOTUS Rule) decided to halt implementation of the new requirements in three states: Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Texas v. EPA Decision on WOTUS
The new WOTUS requirements—which essentially expand the applicability of Clean Water Act programs like SPCC Planning, oil spill notifications, NPDES permitting, stormwater discharge, and dredge-and-fill—are now blocked in 26 states and in effect in the remaining 24.
