Issues include a revised definition of waters of the US (WOTUS). There is a need for more certainty on these issues. The Sackett case is coming up before the Supreme Court. A request for extension was submitted. One issue is the use of CERCLA authority for a water deposition limit. The EPA estimated costs appear to be underestimated and incomplete. The Chamber is working on comments and requested CIBO to weigh in on this issue. Issues include disposing of waste waters generated by EPA research projects and standards levels below non-detect levels.
