Summary:
Describes rule proposed jointly by EPA and Army Corps of Engineers on Mar. 25, 2014, to revise definition of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA) for the first time in 25 years, in light of Supreme Court rulings in 2001 and 2006 that interpreted regulatory scope of the CWA more narrowly than previously, but left uncertainty about the precise effect of Supreme Court decisions. Provides side-by-side comparison of definition of "waters of the United States" in existing regulatory language.
