Clean Water Regulation Repealed by Trump Administration

FRIDAY, Sept. 13, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The repeal of an Obama-era clean water regulation is expected to be announced Thursday by the Trump administration.

Environmentalists say the move is an assault on protection of the nation's streams and wetlands, The New York Times reported.

The repeal of the regulation that placed limits on polluting chemicals that could be used near streams, wetlands and water bodies has been widely expected since President Donald Trump signed an executive order about it in the early days of his administration.

The repeal was scheduled to be announced at the headquarters of the National Association of Manufacturers and will take effect in a few weeks, The Times reported.
