NCBA's Scott Yager Tells Landowners To Enjoy New Trump WOTUS Rule Which Became Law June 22
Mon, 29 Jun 2020 09:32:01 CDT
The Navigable Waters Protection Rule, the Trump administrationís replacement for the Obama era WOTUS rule went into effect June 22. The Trump administration repealed WOTUS in September of 2019.
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes With Scott Yager
Scott Yager, Chief Environmental Counsel of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, talks about what that means for farmers, ranchers and other landowners.
Itís a done deal, Yager said.
This is the point where people can start complying with the new law, Yager said.
The Trump rule is now law in every state except Colorado.
Go out there and enjoy the new Trump water rule, Yager said.
Yager said the biggest difference between the old rule and the new law is getting rid of ephemeral features. Those are the features that only convey water during or after a rain or snowmelt; that was categorically regulated under the Obama administrations rule.
That is no longer under the federal governmentís control, Yager said. That was a huge shift under this new rule.
Beyond that it gets a little complex and technical.
If you have a major river or ocean, that is a WOTUS, Yager said.
But if you go upstream from those big features, it becomes more complicated.
If you have a ranch property with small features that youíre not sure if it is just moving water after a rain event, those are the situations where youíre going to have to be more technical and will need to get more guidance, Yager said.
The new law is being challenged by a multitude of environmental groups, Yager said.
