May 12, 2021 Waters Advocacy Coalition (WAC) Letter to EPA Administrator Regan
Dear Administrator Regan,
We write to congratulate you on your appointment to lead the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and to request a meeting with you and your team to discuss Clean Water Act jurisdiction and permitting and its impact on the Biden administration’s priorities. The Waters Advocacy Coalition (WAC) represents major sectors of the the American economy that are affected by the definition of “waters of the United States;” including construction, transportation, housing, mining, manufacturing, forestry, agriculture, energy, wildlife conservation, recreation, and public health and safety sectors – all of which are vital to a thriving economy and providing much-needed jobs. The coalition has been working with the EPA, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Congress, and other stakeholders on this issue for more than a decade.
