Comment Period Extended for Clean Water Act Jurisdictional Guidance

The U.S. EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that they are extending the public comment period for their recently released draft guidance on the jurisdictional reach of the Clean Water Act.

The comment period, originally set to expire on July 1, 2011, has been extended 30 days. All comments must now be submitted by July 31, 2011. The guidance is being issued to provide additional clarity on which waters are subject to the Clean Water Act after years of uncertainty following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Rapanos v. United States, 547 U.S. 715 (2006).
