WASHINGTON — National Grange President Betsy Huber applauded the release today of the final Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule by the EPA and Corps of Engineers. She released the following statement through the Pennsylvania State Grange.
“This new WOTUS rule replaces a rule that overreached the authority granted by Congress to regulate navigable versus not-so-navigable water on private lands. The revised navigable definition provides four clear categories of waters that are to be federally regulated under the Clean Water Act and details what waters are not subject to federal control. This is good news for farmers, ranchers and landowners.”
