Navigable Waters Protection Rule

Navigable Waters Protection Rule Training Presentations

To ensure consistent and effective implementation of the NWPR, EPA and the Department of the Army developed a series of work products involving training, implementation memos, and resources. The agencies held webcasts in June and July 2020 to explain elements of the Navigable Waters Protection Rule. More information about those webcasts, including links to the recorded trainings, can be found here.
