Description
 
The Clean Water Act prohibits the discharge of dredged or fill material into fed regíd waters without first obtaining a Army Corps of Eng. permit. Before 2001, the Corps asserted jurisdiction over most waters, if migratory birds could use them. However, in Jan. 2001, the Supreme Court concluded that the Corps exceeded its authority in asserting jurisdiction over such waters based solely on their use by birds. This report examines the extent to which the Corps: processes data it uses for making jurisdictional determinations; documents decisions that it does not have jurisdiction; is using its remaining authority to assert jurisdiction over isolated, intrastate, nonnavigable waters; & EPA are collecting data to assess the impact of the courtís 2001 ruling.
