ARA Filed Comments to EPA, Army Requesting WOTUS Public Comments

Aug 17 2021

ARA filed comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army (Army) requesting a 60-day extension of the comment period for defining the "Waters of the United States" or WOTUS as the agencies pursue future rulemaking proceedings.

"ARA believes the current 30-day comment period is woefully inadequate for all interested stakeholders to provide the type of in-depth input the agency needs," says ARA Senior Vice President of Public Policy & Counsel Richard Gupton in the comments.

The scope of jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act (CWA) is fundamentally important to ARA members, their farmer customers and the ag industry as a whole. Read more background information on WOTUS in ARA's comments linked below.
