2014 IWUA

Idaho Water Users Association

IWUA is organized to promote, aid and assist the development, control, conservation, preservation and utilization of the water   resources of the State of Idaho and to cooperate with similar organizations in other states.  IWUA represents irrigation water users, municipalities, hydropower, aquaculture, agri-businesses and businesses interested in the perpetuation of wise water use in Idaho and our nation. The Idaho Water Users Association consists of approximately 300 irrigation districts and canal companies, agri-businesses, public water supply organizations, professional firms and individuals from around the state that manage water supplies for more than 2 million acres of irrigated Idaho farmland.

EPA Issues Controversial Proposed New Rule Regarding the Clean Water Act

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers jointly released a proposed rule to clarify protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation's water resources. Determining Clean Water Act protection for streams and wetlands became confusing and complex following Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on Monday, April 21, 2014. The public comment period will be open for 182 days and will close on Monday, October 20, 2014.
