Sponsored by

WASHINGTON, DC, June 28, 2011 -- The U.S. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers have extended the public comment period for the draft guidance on Identifying Waters Protected by the Clean Water Act. The extension was granted in response to requests from state and local officials, as well as other stakeholders. Interested parties now have until July 31, 2011 to comment on this important draft guidance.

EPA says the extension of the public comment period will not impact the schedule for finalizing the guidance or alter the intent to proceed with a rulemaking.

Public input received will be carefully considered as the agencies make final decisions regarding the guidance. These comments will also be very helpful as the agencies prepare a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
