In an article published in the June 2014 issue of Properties magazine, John A. Heer and Leslie G. Wolfe discussed the U.S. EPA’s and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed new rule defining “waters of the United States” under the federal Clean Water Act. In their article, titled “EPA’s Controversial Rule Clarifying CWA Jurisdiction Could Negatively Impact Most Commercial Property Owners,” John and Leslie asserted that this rule, if enacted, could impact anyone who owns commercial property or who may be contemplating a real estate transaction.
