EEI Applauds EPA and the Army Corps for Issuing a Clear New Definition for Waters of the United States

WASHINGTON (January 23, 2020) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement on the new definition for Waters of the United States (WOTUS).

"EEI and our member companies applaud the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers for finalizing the new, clear WOTUS definition that protects our nation’s waters while also providing regulatory certainty to our industry as we continue our clean energy transformation.

"Across the country, EEI’s member companies are investing more than $110 billion annually in smarter energy infrastructure. Having clear regulatory guidance enables us to site, permit, build, and operate the energy infrastructure we need to deliver the clean energy future that our customers want and expect."
