The proposed rule to revise the definition of “waters of the United States” under the federal Clean Water Act, which originally was announced on March 25, 2014 by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), formally was published in the Federal Register on Monday, April 21, 2014. (Federal Register Vol. 79, No. 76, Monday, April 21, 2014, at pages 22187-22274.) The text of the proposed rule is substantively identical to the March 25 pre-release version.
