#CleanWaterRule published in the federal register #WOTUS @EPA @SWS_org @RamsarConv @INTECOL_Wetland

The United States' EPA's recent Clean Water Rule clarifying the definitions of the waters of the United States (WOTUS) protected under the Clean Water Act, has been published in the federal register.



The discussion of the rule is still ongoing and can be followed on Twitter and elsewhere, as I discussed earlier.

It is increasingly likely that the Clean Water Rule will be covered in a special session at the Society of Wetland Scientists' Pacific Northwest Chapter meeting in Olympia this October. Read the Society's statement on the rule here.
