A proposal to clarify which types of water bodies in the United States fall under the Clean Water Act is drawing concern from Koochiching County.
Commissioner Wade Pavleck says any progress made over wetlands could be reversed if the act goes ahead.
The changes to the act were the result of two federal court rulings that brought into question where the Act applies.
A 90-day comment period is currently underway which Koochiching County intends to respond.
