EPA releases amended WOTUS rule

The Environmental Protection Agency has amended the Waters of the U.S. Rule.  EPA’s Agricultural Advisor Rod Snyder tells Brownfield, “We’re basically, specifically addressing the removal of the significant nexus test as well as the adjacency test for wetlands. Those are things the Supreme Court was very clear about.”

Snyder says the “relatively permanent” test that was in place since the Rapanos v. United States decision more than 15 years ago remains in place, as well as the agricultural exemptions announced at the beginning of the year.
