Rebuilding the EPA

The Environmental Protection Network just released a large report that was signed by six former EPA administrators from both parties outlining how to rebuild the EPA. The report covers all facets of EPA's work, including the CWA. If Biden wins the election, it's safe to say there will be significant changes at the EPA. Aside from halting the major changes to the rules that are underway (see Recommendation #5 in the linked report), we can expect to see program-wide changes to how business is conducted. This document may give a hint in what areas we'll see change. Here's a link to the CWA section. https://www.environmentalprotectionnetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Protecting-the-Nation-Waters-Under-the-Clean-Water-Act.pdf
