EPA’s Proposed Waters of the U.S. Regulations

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) released a proposed rule in March to clarify protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation’s water resources. In this webcast, Donna Downing of EPA’s Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds, and Ken Kopocis, senior advisor in the EPA’s Office of Water, will explain the proposed rule and discuss what the proposal would mean to the agriculture sector. The proposed definitions of waters do not protect any new types of waters that have not historically been covered under the Clean Water Act and are consistent with the Supreme Court’s reading of Clean Water Act jurisdiction.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.

Presenters include:
  • Donna Downing - Wetlands Division, U.S. EPA
  • Kenneth J. Kopocis - Office of Water at the U.S. EPA
  • Carol Galloway - U.S. EPA
The intention of this webcast is to educate on the contents of the proposed “Waters of the U.S.” rule. The audience is encouraged to ask questions of the presenters during the webcast at the conclusion of their presentations and to comment on the proposed rule through the EPA website. The opinions of the presenters are their own, they are not necessarily the opinions of the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center.
