Ag Retailers Association Applauds EPA on Proposed New Waters of the United States Definition

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:52:52 CST

Ag Retailers Association Applauds EPA on Proposed New Waters of the United States Definition Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) President and CEO Daren Coppock released the following statement following the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army announcement of its proposed new water rule:



“This proposed rule is a positive step toward regulatory certainty for America’s farmers, ranchers and ag retailers. This straightforward new language protects our nation’s clean water while allowing agricultural retailers to work with their farmer customers on the core of their business – providing food, feed, and fuel for our country and the world – and not wading through confusing and unclear policies.



“A clear rule that defines ‘navigable waters’ in a way that does not require a team of lawyers and consultants to determine if the federal EPA has jurisdiction over land and is within the scope of the Clean Water Act is something all Americans have needed for several decades. This proposed rule appears to draw bright lines on jurisdiction to remove confusion while protecting clean water. ARA looks forward to further exploring the proposal and submitting comments to the respective agencies.



“ARA appreciates that EPA and the Army Corps have taken the time to listen to the agriculture industry in writing this commonsense rule.”



Coppock attended the announcement event at EPA today.
