Waters of the US Panel Discussion

The upcoming MACD Convention at Fairmont Hot Springs will feature a panel discussion on the EPA’s new Waters of the US rules. The EPA’s decisions on this rule could have a huge impact on ranchers & conservation districts, and although the comment period will be over by the time of the convention, we invite you to attend this discussion to learn more about the changes and how it will affect you. Please plan to attend these breakout sessions, and come with questions!

Panel Speakers:

  • Steve Hedstrom, Past President of MACD and currently our representative to NACD, will share his perspective.
  • Steve Becker, NRCS State Engineer, will let us know where NRCS is on this issue.
  • George Mathieus from DEQ has thoughts about the Montana application of the proposed rule.

The one hour sessions will have plenty of time for questions and discussion.
