Waters of the U.S. Rule update

There have been recent court decisions about the 2015 Clean Water Act Rule defining "Waters of U.S."  Kansas is currently operating under the pre-2015 regulations and guidance (i.e. pre "WOTUS" rule), thanks to a preliminary injunction granted in a federal court in Georgia on June 8, 2018.  States affected by a recent decision in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, however, are operating under the 2015 Clean Water Act Rule.  For more information about the status of applicability of the 2015 Clean Water Act Rule, including a map showing the applicability of the rule in each state, you can view the EPA's webpage dedicated to this subject.
