Section 404 of the Clean Water Act

State and Tribal Legislation and Studies related to CWA Section 404(g)

This page has state and tribal legislation, studies, and other documents related to their efforts to assume the CWA section 404 program.  These were submitted to the NACEPT subcommittee on Assumable Waters, by the subcommittee members, for their use and consideration.

Please Note: Many of these documents were provided to EPA in a format that we cannot ensure compliance with Section 508 requirements.  Others were created before accessibility requirements under Section 508 were in effect. If a document is not accessible to you and you need a reasonable accommodation, please contact th subcommittee's Designated Federal Official, Ms. Laura Bachle at and we will work with you.
