US Supreme Court Decision: Sackett v. EPA
Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on
The U.S. Supreme Court in Sackett v. EPA finally settled the definition of WOTUS, i.e. Waters of the United States. The crux of the matter is that the court defines WOTUS open to regulation by the EPA as, “only those relatively permanent, standing or continuously flowing bodies of water forming geographical features that are described in ordinary parlance as streams, oceans, rivers, and lakes.” Rather than repeat competing media spins on what this means for regulatory powers of the EPA in general and clean water in the U.S. in particular, we're posting a link to the actual SCOTUS decision.
