The supplemental notice clarifies EPA and the Army are proposing to permanently repeal the 2015 WOTUS rule in its entirety. The notice also reiterates EPA and the Army are proposing to recodify the pre-2015 regulations, consistent with Supreme Court precedent, while they finalize a new definition of WOTUS. Public comments regarding this supplemental notice will be accepted through August 13, 2018.
