Learn How EPA's Controversial Clean Water Rule Will Impact WOTUS Implementation, Enforcement and Your Bottom Line

On the last Friday of August 2015, the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers issued its controversial Clean Water Rule, which creates a new, extraordinarily expansive definition of “waters of the United States (WOTUS).”

The new rules are vast and complex, and affect almost 2 million miles of streams and more than 19 million acres of wetlands. Due to this, the rules have been subject to a massive PR campaign on the part of the Environmental Protection Agency and have also faced a massive public shout, as the volume of comments submitted in the docket prove. This has resulted in the proposal attracting the highest level of attention from the upcoming 114th Congress, which has already prepared a list containing all the EPA regulations worthy of greater scrutiny. Will the WOTUS rule be able to survive congress? And if that happens, what impact will the regulated community bear?

Join this session by expert speaker Tamar Cerafici to learn about the recent changes and understand the origin of these changes. Tamar will do a critical review of these changes, discuss the implementation effects and highlight the current challenges that arise due to the legal background as well as current political environment.

This entertaining and informative program will be filled with helpful hints and resources for all levels of experience. Small companies or those newer to the field may benefit particularly from the knowledge imparted during the presentation. You will also receive a comparison chart that illustrates the differences between the new rule and the prior regulation.

Session Highlights:

  • Navigating the complex new definition of “waters of the United States (WOTUS).”
