    Watching WOTUS: How a Change in Definition Impacts Counties

    The administration recently announced the signing of a proposed rule to revise the definition of “waters of the United States” (WOTUS). The agencies propose to reinstate the pre-2015 definition of WOTUS, updated to reflect the consideration of Supreme Court decisions. The WOTUS definition directly impacts counties as owners and operators of local infrastructure. Counties may need to apply for a federal permit to maintain or build new infrastructure projects under the rule. Join this discussion with federal officials responsible for implementing WOTUS to understand the potential impacts of a new rule.
