Title: Definition of "Waters of the United States"--Recodification of Preexisting Rule 

In 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Army (the agencies) published the Clean Water Rule: Definition of "Waters of the United States" (80 FR 37054, June 29, 2015). On February 28, 2017, the President signed Executive Order 13778, Restoring the Rule of Law, Federalism, and Economic Growth by Reviewing the Waters of the United States Rule, which instructed the agencies to review the 2015 Rule and rescind or replace it as appropriate and consistent with law. The agencies published a proposed rule to initiate the first step in a comprehensive two-step process to revise the definition of waters of the United States to be consistent with the Executive order.
