Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rulemaking

Tribal Consultation Letters - National Tribal Organization

As part of the EPA and the Department of the Army’s efforts to review and revise the scope of the “waters of the United States,” the agencies have posted almost 200 comment letters that were submitted during the formal  consultation process, giving the public and stakeholders the opportunity to review the input the agencies received.  A summary of issues raised during tribal and federalism consultation will be available in the docket once a Step 2 rulemaking is proposed.
