That rule defined the wetlands and waterways that are protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA). EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler signed a new rule throwing out the prior definition of the regulation and bringing protection standards from 1986 back into effect. The 2015 rule had been blocked in 27 states and was in effect in 22 others. The repeal places all 50 states back under 1986 regulations. “Thanks to the leadership of the EPA we can move forward with a water rule that protects...
