EPA/Corps Post-Rapanos Guidance Imminent

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., January 19, 2007

Although the agencies have sung this tune most of last year following the Supreme Court's fractured ruling in the Rapanos case, it appears that joint EPA and Army Corps of Engineers guidance could be issued this month.  Recent comments from EPA's Benjamin Grumbles and the Corps' Mark Sudol indicate the agencies are serious about meeting a "sometime in January" deadline.  Watch this space for announcements as soon as the guidance is available.  In addition, please register for an audio conference to be presented by Fred Wagner on January 30th at 1:00 PM, EST.  Mr. Wagner will discuss judicial post-Rapanos developments and, hopefully, the new agency guidance.  Please call 800-248-6426  or visit to register for that conference.
