SBA to Host Roundtable Discussion with EPA, Corps on WOTUS Changes


On Monday, Jan. 10, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy is hosting a virtual roundtable meeting with staff from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to discuss how the Biden administration’s proposed rule to withdraw the Trump administration’s “waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) definition under the Clean Water Act and replace it with a new WOTUS definition will affect small businesses such as land developers and home builders.

The purpose of SBA’s roundtable meeting is to have EPA and Corps staff explain elements of the proposed WOTUS definition and encourage discussion of the impact of the proposed rule on small businesses. The forum will include a Q&A session with EPA and the Corps.
