Earthjustice: Trump Threatens Drinking Water for One in Three People

Earthjustice

WASHINGTON - Today, President Trump signed an executive order that puts safeguards for the drinking water of one in three people across the country at risk and threatens to pollute thousands of lakes and rivers. Specifically, Trump is ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to dismantle the Clean Water Rule, and encourages the Agency to replace it with the weakest possible rule that would leave 60 percent of nation’s streams and millions of acres of wetlands without strong federal protection against toxic pollution.
