This CLE webinar will provide environmental counsel with an in-depth review of the EPA’s newly proposed revision that widely expands the reach of its rule defining “waters of the U.S.” The panel will examine the huge number of entities, businesses, and local governments that will be impacted as well as how—and the expected legal challenges that the rule change will precipitate. The panel will outline and analyze practical next steps for counsel in moving forward with transactions involving waters under and not yet under EPA control.
