    That's very alarming. I had heard something like this recently, but didn't realize the extent of it. I'm from Oklahoma, and I do know that fracking is changing my home state with earthquakes. Who knows what the lasting effects of fracking will be?

    Trump 'Eliminates' Clean Water Rule
    massey-run-1-of-1-2_custom-df16a090050f4Massey Run, an intermittent stream that runs into Crum Creek in Pennsylvania's Chester County, is impacted by the Waters of the United States rule.

    The Trump administration is moving to roll back an environmental rule intended to define which small bodies of water are subject to federal authority under the Clean Water Act.

    After the 2015 rule, Owen McDonough of the National Association of Homebuilders said a developer who buys a rural piece of land "is all of a sudden faced with jurisdiction waters, and then he has to secure federal permits, and offset his impacts." He said builders must hire expensive environmental consultants to get those permits.

    Trump echoed that criticism when he addressed the homebuilders association. It's worth noting that Trump has a stake in the rule's fate. As Greg has reported, the Trump Organization has about a dozen golf courses across the U.S.

    Trump's executive order has been sharply criticized by environmental groups. Earthjustice accused the president of "demonstrating that he puts the interests of corporate polluters above the public's health."
    Supporters of the Waters of the United States rule say states simply don't have the resources to ensure healthy streams and clean drinking water on their own.

    The Obama rule was NEVER in effect.

    Liberals, where are you dumping the toxic cadmium byproduct from your solar panel manufacturing?

    I guess the children mining cobalt in the Congo for your batteries would appreciate any drink of water.

    Liberals, here's whose mining your cobalt:

    Here's the water in the Congo Liberals:

    Where the Affirmative Action for them Liberals?

    Inclusion: Liberals using batteries made with child labor.

    Diversity: Many children are needed to make each battery.

    Acceptance: Liberals accept using child labor.
