The EPA and the Army Corps will hold public meetings on Waters of the United States (WOTUS).
What's that mean to Oklahoma Scenic Rivers?
The rule passed by the Trump EPA does not offer full protection to streams like many of those feeding the Illinois River and other state scenic rivers. These streams are called intermittent streams. They don't always have water flowing in them. Some springs, marshes and wetlands supplying water to our scenic rivers no longer have federal Clean Water Act protection under the current WOTUS rule.
