Trump Administration to Finalize Rollback of Clean Water Protections

The Trump administration on Thursday is expected to complete the legal repeal of a major Obama-era clean water regulation, which had placed limits on polluting chemicals that could be used near streams, wetlands and water bodies. Weakening the Obama-era water rule had been a central campaign pledge
for Mr. Trump, who characterized it as a federal land-grab that impinged
on the rights of farmers, rural landowners and real estate developers
to use their property as they see fit.
