Dear Clean Water Network Members,
We hope that you can join us for:
CLEAN WATER RULE WEBINAR – WHAT DOES THE FINAL RULE DO AND NEXT STEPS
Following the issuance of the final Clean Water Rule… what does it actually do and how did it change from the draft? What are we anticipating from Congress? What about implementation?
U.S. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers finalized the Clean Water Rule on May 27th. This rule clarifies which waters are protected under the Clean Water Act following Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006 that confused implementation of the Act and put many wetlands and streams at risk. This rulemaking will fundamentally influence everyone’s work to protect and restore our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands.
At 297 pages, the final rule covers a lot of ground, so please join River Network and Clean Water Network for a one-hour webinar to hear from conservation community experts on the details of what was included in the final rule, and what we expect for the next steps on defending the rule from additional attacks.
Date: Wednesday, July 1st
Time: 12:30 EST/9:30 PST
Content and overview of the rule – Jon Devine, Senior Attorney, NRDC
Next steps for defending the rule – John Rumpler, Senior Attorney, Environment America
Please RSVP by June 29th here http://www.rivernetwork.org/forms/river-network-webinar-RSVP and webinar log in information will be sent to you.
