EPA proposes withdrawal of WOTUS

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its proposed notice of withdrawal of the controversial Waters of the US Rule (WOTUS).

If left uncontested, the rule would have allowed the federal government to regulate dry streambeds and isolated wetlands in a radical expansion of jurisdiction over waters that have little to no connection to flowing streams and rivers.

“This is a welcome step in the process to remove this controversial rule,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “NSSGA members fully support the administration’s effort to removing rules that would increase costs for aggregates operators with no environmental benefit. If left in place, the current rule will have a direct impact on costs, timing and deliverables for vital infrastructure projects. We are preparing comments for EPA on this matter and look forward continuing to work with the administration to refine costly and burdensome regulations.”
