Federal Appeals Court to Review EPA’s Waters of the US Rule

The US Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit voted 2-1 to review the Environmental Protection Agency’s Waters of the United States rule. Critics say the rule is overly broad and would “extend federal reach to small streams and dry creek beds.” Dorothy Kellogg, NRECA senior principal, environmental issues, said, “The Waters of the U.S. rule would exert federal oversight over myriads of water bodies, including those that are dry most of the year. And that means many more expensive permits for co-ops to maintain and construct power corridors and site new generation – including renewables.”
