The Environmental Protection Agency is looking for feedback as they begin the process of redefining the Waters of the U.S. rule. The virtual meetings beginning next week are a slight change from what was discussed when EPA Administrator Michael Regan came to North Dakota. “I don’t think the EPA is doing virtual in place of all in-person meetings, but it’s a great chance to get feedback,” said North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer. “I’m still expecting an in-person meeting for North Dakota.” In the meantime, North Dakota’s WOTUS rule is still in effect. “The Biden administration reopening WOTUS allows us to keep our rule active. The Biden administration has to have their new rule in place to revoke the Trump administration’s rule back to pre-Obama administration. That will become the benchmark.”
