I received this information over the weekend.
Last month, the Obama administration proposed a new rule to clarify which wetlands and streams in the U.S. are covered under the Clean Water Act.
One in three American’s gets their drinking water from public systems that rely on seasonal, rain-dependent and headwater streams. Most of these waters are at risk of pollution due to confusing Supreme Court rulings and unclear agency guidance. This proposal will provide clarity and the protections needed to ensure these waters are safe and healthy for everyone.
The proposals is also supported by the latest peer-reviewed science, including a draft scientific assessment by EPA, which presents a review and synthesis of more than 1,000 pieces of scientific literature.
This could be helpful.
