Corn Growers Weigh-In on Redefining WOTUS

Tue, 24 May 2022 08:25:56 CDT

Corn Growers Weigh-In on Redefining WOTUS EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers are holding ten regional roundtables to gauge the implications of recently proposed changes to the definition of Waters of the U.S.



Megan Dwyer, Director of Conservation and Nutrient Stewardship at Illinois Corn Growers Association, is participating in one of the agency's roundtables today.



"Farmers and ag groups have embraced the need to tackle challenges around conservation and are more than ready to continue our efforts," she said. "I plan to ask EPA to work collaboratively with farmers to address actual, real on the ground needs as a practical and realistic alternative to making these features Waters of the United States and getting in the way of farmers' efforts."



Last November, EPA released a proposed rule to re-establish the pre-2015 definition of "Waters of the United States," often referred to as WOTUS. The proposed rule removes the Navigable Waters Protection Rule, eliminating the long-overdue certainty and clarity for farmers affected by the scope of WOTUS jurisdiction.



Dwyer will offer her remarks at 4 p.m. (Eastern) today, which can be viewed here.
