EPA & Corps of Engineers to get input from farmers on WOTUS

The EPA and U.S. Department of the Army has set up a series of public meetings in August to hear from farmers and other stakeholders on a definition for Waters of the U.S.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan says the goal is to listen to all sides and craft “an enduring definition of WOTUS because uncertainty over the definition has harmed waters, stakeholders and communities that rely on them.”

Ag Secretary Vilsack says it’s vital farmers and rural Americans have a seat at the table.

Details of the meetings are currently unavailable.
