Court tosses Trump water pollution rule

A federal judge has thrown out a major Trump administration rule that scaled back federal protections for streams, marshes and wetlands across the United States, reversing one of the previous administration’s most significant environmental rollbacks.

U.S. District Judge Rosemary Márquez wrote that Trump officials committed serious errors while writing the regulation, finalized last year and that leaving it in place could lead to “serious environmental harm.”
