Trump rolls back US water pollution controls
The Trump administration is scrapping protections for America’s streams and wetlands, repealing Barack Obama’s Waters of the United States regulation.
The move will dismantle federal protections for more than half of wetlands and hundreds of small waterways in the US.
The White House says the change will be a victory for American farmers.
But critics say the change will be destructive – part of Mr Trump’s wider assault on environmental protections.

Trump Rolls Back Another Obama-Era Enviro Rule As Impeachment Trial Drags On
The Environmental Protection Agency finalized a rule Thursday afternoon scaling back an Obama-era regulation farmers and energy producers said saddled them with unnecessary burdens.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced the rule change in Las Vegas, effectively hemming in a regulation restricting the use of fertilizers and pesticides. President Donald Trump promised to repeal his predecessor’s “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule when he was running in 2016.
Rolling back WOTUS saves landowners, farmers and businesses from being forced to hire “teams of attorneys to tell them how to use their own land,” Wheeler told reporters at a meeting of the National Association of Home Builders. The rollback is one of many the president is administering.
