    Trump Administration Repeals Federal Protections on Puddles, Dry Stream Beds, Some Ditches
    Hysterical reactions greet the White House's modest changes to federal clean water rules.

    (Marty Randall/Dreamstime.com)
    Another day, another barrage of hysterical reactions to a marginal regulatory reform. The latest cause for concern is the White House's finalized clean water rule that renounces the federal government's ability to regulate ponds, puddles, and (some) ditches.

    Yesterday's regulation replaces the prior Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule issued by the Obama administration in 2015. The Obama-era rule was controversial from the get-go, with multiple Red states filing legal challenges claiming it exceeded the federal government's authority to regulate water pollution. A slew of federal court rulings stayed the implementation of the rule in over half the states.

    The new rule released yesterday is intended to pare back the federal government's regulatory powers to something closer to what Congress intended when it passed the 1972 Clean Water Act.

    "All states have their own protections for waters within their borders, and many regulate more broadly than the federal government," said Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Andy Wheeler at a homebuilding conference in Las Vegas today. Wheeler's department, alongside the Army Corp of Engineers, is responsible for writing and implementing the new clean water rule. "Our new rule recognizes this relationship and strikes the proper balance between Washington, D.C., and the states."


    Most media outlets reporting on the rule change went with a different framing.

    Trumpers love the smell of benzene in the morning so these Trumper anti-environmental posts do not surprise me in the least.

    It's almost as though water won't feed into waterways through those systems when it rains/floods.

    Lol..Someone is triggered. Despite your lies, no one is more anti-environmental than you Trumpers. The more toxins industry dumps into your water supply, the more your type loves it no matter who it injures. You know why? Because that is how sheep act.

    And yet here you are using that energy to post.... Then you fail to understand that with our current scrubbing technology that 99.996% of what you see in that picture is water vapor... Your nothing more than a disingenuous liar.

    Exactly!!

    If any water ever flows over your land, the government should have total control over your land.
