On December 11, NACo will host a webinar with the State and Local Legal Center on the regulatory status of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS), a regulatory term used in the Clean Water Act to determine which waters and their conveyances fall under federal and state permitting authority. The webinar will feature Samuel Brown, a former EPA attorney and currently a partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP.

During the webinar, Brown will provide an overview of the recent repeal of the 2015 WOTUS rule, a discussion of which WOTUS rules apply across the United States, the potential impacts of the Trump Administration’s proposed WOTUS rule and how the upcoming presidential election may affect the definition of WOTUS and the litigation surrounding it. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, December 11 at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.
