Water Office Accepting Comments on Rule Review Plan

President Obama has ordered each agency to develop a plan to periodically conduct a retrospective review of its regulations, and determine if they are ineffective, insufficient, or overly burdensome.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Water is participating in two listening sessions to be held on March 14 and 17 to gather more input on the development of a plan to conduct periodic reviews of its regulations as ordered by President Obama.

The Office of Water also will solicit input from the public and hold a webinar listening session on water-specific significant regulations from 1 to 2:30 p.m. EST on March 17. Additional information, including information on registering for this webinar, can be obtained by going to EPA's website or contacting Keith Bartlett at Bartlett.Keith@epa.gov

EPA will hold an agency-wide public meeting from 9:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. EST on March 14 to solicit feedback on the agency's draft review plan and all EPA regulations. The Office of Water will be hosting two water-specific listening sessions in the afternoon. This public meeting will be held at the Hilton Arlington, 950 N. Stafford St., Arlington, VA 22203.
