Issue: Whether all waters of the United States may be treated as a â€œunitaryâ€ whole for purposes of the Act's provisions requiring permits for point source discharges, so that transferring pollutants from one distinct water body to another does not constitute an â€œadditionâ€ of the pollutants to navigable waters and therefore does not require a permit.
