The agencies’ proposed rule would provide clarity, predictability and consistency so that the regulated community can easily understand where the Clean Water Act applies—and where it does not. Under the agencies’ proposal, traditional navigable waters, tributaries to those waters, certain ditches, certain lakes and ponds, impoundments of jurisdictional waters, and wetlands adjacent to jurisdictional waters would be federally regulated. It also details what are not “waters of the United States,” such as features that only contain water during or in response to rainfall (e.g., ephemeral features); groundwater; many ditches, including most roadside or farm ditches; prior converted cropland; stormwater control features; and waste treatment systems.
Public Listening Session - EPA and the Army will hold a public listening session on the proposed "Revised Definition of Waters of the United States" on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at The Reardon Convention Center in Kansas City, KS.

KLICA is a non-profit association made up of conservation contractors and landscapers who promote quality work in land and resource protection across the state of Kansas.
LICA has numerous benefits for their contractor members. They can be found on the website link below. But the biggest benefit to members is the opportunity to meet, trade ideas and concerns with, and socialize with other contractors across the state and around the nation. At meetings you'll hear from state agencies, financial management professionals, and others who can help you improve your business and plan for the future.
At their October 6, 2018 Fall Meeting the KLICA Board approved a contractor member dues increase effective for 2019. This was not an easy decision for the BOD but is needed to keep up with the rising costs of doing business and an anticipated National LICA dues increase. Member renewals will be going out soon and will reflect this increase.
Kansas Land Improvement Contractors Association (KLICA) is now able to accept credit card payments. A 3% service fee will be added on to all credit card payments. For contractor membership payments only, one button under the Membership page is available. For all other credit card payments please contact the Executive Director. Thanks.
