NCGA Asks EPA, Army Corps to Release WOTUS Guidance

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 11:43:02 CDT

NCGA Asks EPA, Army Corps to Release WOTUS Guidance On September 17, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers hosted a closed webinar with agency personnel to address 27 questions regarding the final Waters of the U.S. rule. This week, the National Corn Growers Association joined 15 other agricultural groups requesting that EPA and the Corps to make public the answers to those questions.


“It’s unfair to communicate to regulators on how to identify a WOTUS under the new rule, but not also share that information with the farmers and ranchers who are being regulated, and who bear all the risks and liabilities that come with it,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling.


“From the beginning, we have been asking for clarity and certainty about farmers’ obligations under the Clean Water Act. It only makes sense that farmers should receive the same guidance as EPA and Corps staff. We ask the agencies to provide the answers to these 27 questions, as well as future answers to questions about the rule, so that farmers can make more informed business decisions about their operations.”
