Rob Geho of CEC Columbus and Trevor Conlow of CEC Pittsburgh, both of whom are in our Ecological Sciences group (with Rob being our local Columbus lead for the group), authored an article, “Wading Through Muddy Waters—Understanding the Navigable Waters Protection Rule.” It appeared in the fall 2020 issue of Developing Pittsburgh here and the article begins on page 51. In the article, Rob and Trevor discuss the Navigable Waters Protection Rule promulgated earlier in 2020. The Rule defines criteria used to classify aquatic features as Waters of the United States (WOTUS), which could affect your project. They also discuss how three scenarios would or would not be affected by the Rule.
