Speaker, National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association AGG1 Academy & Expo, "Waterway and Wetland Update"

Speaking Engagements

Aggregates operators need to understand which waterways and wetlands on their sites may qualify as "waters of the United States" (WOTUS) and require permits for filling or dredging activities. This session will provide updates on the status of the WOTUS rule and other significant water-related legal issues, discuss water-related permitting programs, and provide practical and technical information about how wetlands are delineated, all with a focus on mining and aggregates sites.
