Title: Revised Definition of "Waters of the United States"--Rule 2 (Reg Plan Seq No. XX) 

The Department of the Army and the Environmental Protection Agency intend to pursue a second rule defining Waters of the United States” to consider further revisions to the agencies' first rule (RIN 0710-AB40) which proposes to restore the regulations in place prior to the 2015 waters of the United States rule (51 FR 41206), updated to be consistent with relevant Supreme Court Decisions. This second rule proposes to include revisions reflecting on additional stakeholder engagement and implementation considerations, scientific developments, and environmental justice values. This effort will also be informed by the experience of implementing the pre-2015 rule, the 2015 Clean Water Rule, and the 2020 Navigable Waters Protection Rule.
