Having received over 60,000 comments already, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have extended the comment period for their proposed rule defining “waters of the United States.” The proposed rule would redefine what types of waters are subject to regulation under the Clean Water Act. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on April 21, 2014 and, as Barg Coffin attorneys predicted, has received a flood of interest. Stakeholders now have until October  20, 2014 to submit comments.
