The Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of the Army are revising the definition of Waters of the United States. The WOTUS definition will be updated through two rulemakings. This includes a foundational rule to restore regulations defining WOTUS that were in place until 2015, consistent with Supreme Court decisions. The second rulemaking process would refine the regulatory foundation and update the WOTUS definition. Starting August 18, the agencies will host a series of five public, virtual meetings to hear all perspectives on both rules. Written recommendations are also being accepted.
