Presented by Strafford Publications
Due to overwhelming popularity, Strafford Publications has scheduled an encore presentation of the May webinar "EPA’s Expanded "Waters of the U.S." Definition: Navigating the Unprecedented Reach and Scope of New Rule" with live Q&A for Tuesday, July 1, 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.

The speakers on the panel will:
- Provide environmental counsel with an in depth review of the EPA’s newly proposed revision that widely expands the reach of its rule defining "waters of the United States"
- Examine the huge number of entities, businesses and local governments that will be impacted and how—and the expected legal challenges that the rule change will precipitate
- Outline and analyze practical next steps for counsel in moving forward with transactions involving waters under and not yet under EPA control
After the presentation, the speakers will engage in a live question and answer session with participants to answer questions about these important issues directly.
