By Merritt Frey – River Network Blog – July 14, 2014
As you’ve read about before on this blog, earlier this year the U.S. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers released a very important draft rulemaking. This draft rule clarifies which waters are protected under the Clean Water Act. As many of you know, Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006 confused implementation of the Act and put many wetlands and streams at risk. This rulemaking will fundamentally influence your work to protect or restore your watershed. River Network is following up with watershed groups all to help you 1.) understand the rule, 2.) decide your position on the rule, and 3.) take action. For full blog post, click here.
