National and PA TU encourages everyone to consider personally filing comments in opposition to EPA’S rule change. The comment period ends on October 21st. This is important. Please take a moment and visit this TU blog for talking points https://www.tu.org/blog/clean-water-at-risk-cwa-401/. You can then comment on EPA’s proposal directly on the docket or through TU’s comment portal, using one of the links in the TU message below. The only way this can be defeated is through overwhelming public opposition that is based on sound science and rational thought. Official 60-day comment period: Publication of the proposed rule triggers a 60-day comment period. Comments are due October 21st. Volunteers are encouraged to comment directly to the docket (here are some tips for commenting through the online portal) or through TU’s Action Alert (available here). Need some help with commenting? A short overview of key takeaways from the proposal is included below. Trout Unlimited staff will review and offer substantive comments on the proposed rule. TU Councils and Chapters are encouraged to coordinate with the Government Affairs team to share project examples, ask questions, and to help ensure we are as effective as possible across the TU family.
