The Effect of the New Definition of Waters of the US from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers (COE) in North Carolina

On June 29, 2015, the US EPA and COE published the final rule for the modified definition of Waters of the US in the Federal Register which will become effective on August 28, 2015 (Federal Register 80(124): 37054-37127). We have conducted an in-depth review of the rule to determine its implications in North Carolina specifically for wetlands and stormwater permitting programs. In general, we expect that there will be minimal change in North Carolina from this new rule since the Corps and EPA have long followed the general approach outlined in the rule. The changes may result in some confusion in North Carolina as well as, potentially, some simplification of the process. Details on the new rule and its effect on the permit application process in NC will be presented during this talk.

Continuing Education Credits:  This forum will provide 1 PDH (professional development hour) credit for professional engineers and surveyors, contingent upon board approval.
