Opinion: Science lacking in proposed waters of the U.S. Rule

A new article, led by Mažeika Sullivan, associate professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and director of the Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, was recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The opinion piece highlights how the new proposed waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, which administers the Clean Water Act, fails to consider the best available science and if enacted could put millions of acres of wetlands and miles of streams at risk, with severe consequences to environmental quality and human well-being.
