NAWG Applauds Release of Updated WOTUS Rule

Thu, 23 Jan 2020 15:15:49 CST

NAWG Applauds Release of Updated WOTUS Rule Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a final rule to provide more clarity in Clean Water Act (CWA) applicability to, and definition of, waters of the U.S. (WOTUS).

“Today’s announcement is welcome news to America’s wheat producers who’ve dealt with years of regulatory uncertainty,” said NAWG President and Lavon, TX, farmer Ben Scholz. “Farmers are dependent on protecting our natural resources for safe and reliable water to grow crops and for the communities that farmers are a part of. To do so, we need regulatory certainty and clarity as well as a commonsense framework for how the rules will work. Wheat growers are pleased the Trump Administration has made this announcement and looking forward to diving into the details.”

This final rule follows an initial proposed rule from December 2018 that NAWG supported. Throughout this process, U.S. farmers have continued to press for regulatory clarity and a framework that focused on waters that are truly navigable in nature.
