On June 9, 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army announced their intent to revise the definition of “waters of the United States” to better protect our nation’s vital water resources that support public health, environmental protection, agricultural activity, and economic growth. The agencies are committed to meaningful engagement with tribes, states, and stakeholders to ensure that a revised definition of “waters of the United States” reflects the experiences of, and input received, from all communities.
EPA and Army are hosting five virtual public meetings on August 18, 2021 from 3-5 p.m. EDT, August 23, 2021 from 1-3 p.m. EDT, August 25, 2021 from 3-5 p.m. EDT, August 26, 2021 from 6-8 p.m. EDT, and August 31, 2021 from 3-5 p.m. EDT. During these meetings, the agencies will provide an overview of their intended process, which includes two rulemakings, and participants will have the opportunity to provide their recommendations.
Persons or organizations wishing to speak during the meetings will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis during the meeting, by participants raising their (virtual) hand to request to speak. Due to the expected number of participants, individuals will be asked to limit their spoken presentation to three minutes.
If you have special needs and require auxiliary aids and/or services to fully participate in this webinar, please contact EPA at least one week before the meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
