ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the redefinition of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) definition of navigable waters for oil industry. EPA restores its definition promulgated in 1973 in conformity with a court-issued mandate. It announces a proposed rule to extend compliance dates for all facilities to November 2009 and to establish new compliance dates for farms, qualified farms and marginal oil production facilities.
