Coyle Presents 'Regulation of Wetlands in Minnesota' at BATC University


Peter Coyle presented Regulation of Wetlands in Minnesota as part of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities University, a continuing education program, on January 29, 2013. The course examined federal and state approaches to establishing regulatory jurisdiction over wetlands and other waterbodies, i.e. whether they are waters of the state or waters of the US, including areas of duplication and potential conflict. The seminar included a detailed discussion of the standards followed by US Corp of Engineers and State of Minnesota regulators when assessing whether a waterbody is within the jurisdiction of the federal or state government and critique such standards based on published legal decisions.
