Natural Resources Defense Council and National Wildlife Federation today filed a lawsuit to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers from illegally delaying implementation of the Clean Water Rule. The complaint, filed in federal court in New York, takes aim at the Trump administration’s attempt to prevent the enforcement of needed protections for lakes, streams and wetlands, including streams that feed into the drinking water supplies of 117 million Americans.
