EPA and the Corps of Engineers Request Proposed Groups for Geographic Roundtables to Discuss Definition of the Waters of the United States (WOTUS)

On November 8, 2021 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers extended the deadline for the agencies’ solicitation for proposed groups to be included in Geographic Roundtables with the agencies to discuss the definition of “the waters of the United States” (WOTUS) under the Clean Water Act. The deadline for proposed groups to provide their membership information and perspective to the agencies has been extended to December 1, 2021. The purpose of the Geographic Roundtables is to assist the agencies in their second rulemaking to define WOTUS.

The agencies are requesting proposed groups for Geographic Roundtables, requiring each proposed group to identify its members, their contact information, and their affiliation. In addition, each proposed group must identify the geographic region and perspectives represented.

The proposed groups are limited to fifteen individuals each.
