The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers extended the public comment period by 30 days for draft guidance on identifying waters protected by the Clean Water Act.

In response to requests from state and local officials, as well as other stakeholders, the EPA and the Corps of Engineers will take additional comment until July 31 on the draft guidance, which aims to protect U.S. waters.

Public comments received will be carefully considered as the agencies make final decisions regarding the guidance. The agencies said the comments also will be helpful as they prepare a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
