Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Definition

As a result of the Sackett vs. EPA Supreme Court ruling, EPA has revised the definition of Waters of the United States (WOTUS). The revised definition limits federally jurisdictional wetlands to only those with a continuous surface connection to WOTUS, removes the significant nexus test when identifying tributaries and other waters as federally protected, and clarifies that interstate wetlands do not fall within the interstate waters category.  

The impact is significant for landowners as lands meeting the definition of WOTUS require that the landowner obtain a federal permit before undertaking certain actions such as dredge and fill (e.g., moving dirt).
