USACE to launch stakeholder process for development of WRDA 2020 implementation guidance
The Corps of Engineers will host five stakeholder sessions to receive input from the public on provisions in WRDA 2020. The sessions will each focus on specific Corps business lines. The water supply session is scheduled for April 6, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET.
These sessions are critical for members to express their interest in specific provisions in the WRDA bill, as well as provide input and recommendations on how the provisions should be implemented. In addition to the listening sessions, the public comment period is open until May 7, 2021 and the Corps will accept written comments up until that date.
