Client Memorandum

Created date


Yesterday, President Trump signed an executive order aimed at reversing the controversial Clean Water Rule, also known as the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule, implemented under the Obama Administration. The executive order calls on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers to begin the lengthy administrative process of rescinding or revising the rule. The WOTUS Rule was one of several Obama-era environmental regulations specifically criticized by President Trump during the presidential campaign.
