    Controversial Waters of the U.S. Role Blocked in 13 States
    Faeger Baker Daniels
    On August 27, 2015, U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson of North Dakota blocked implementation of the EPA and Army Corps’ Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, which was to take effect August 28. The WOTUS rule is concerning to many industry sectors because it would significantly expand Clean Water Act (CWA) jurisdiction for the agencies. In particular, the rule would extend jurisdiction to broad definitions of tributaries and adjacent waters, and would also codify the agencies’ ability to make subjective determinations of what constitutes WOTUS under a "significant nexus" determination.
