The EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have issued a proposed rule to clarify protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands. The purpose of this proposed rule is to clear up the confusion that was caused by the Supreme Court's decisions from 2001 and 2006. The original proposed rule was posted in the Federal Register on April 21, 2014. Public comments will be accepted until October 20, 2014.
