The Environmental Protection Agency released its final WOTUS Rule earlier this month. Rinke Noonan Law Firm attorney Kale Van Bruggen expects to see more changes in the future. “Several administrations have attempted to tackle this issue, but none of them successfully without litigation.” Van Bruggen says it is important to keep in mind that there are other federal and state regulations that impact water and wetlands. “Under the Farm Bill, we still have a Wetland Conservation Act law.” The new rule likely won’t have much impact on Minnesotans, but other states with less regulation could see changes.
