EPA proposes more protections for streams, wetlands
from The Washington Post via The Virginian-Pilot
The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule that would give the federal government regulatory authority over millions of acres of wetlands and roughly 2 million miles of streams. The proposal, which is subject to a 90-day comment period slated to begin in a few weeks, would lead to stricter pollution controls on some of these areas and aims to resolve a long-running legal battle over how to apply the Clean Water Act to the nation's intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands.
