Federal Judge Blocks Waters Rule in Some States

Aug. 27, 2015 - A Federal judge temporarily blocked the EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers from enforcing its "Waters Rule of the United States" in certain states. The judge said that the states, which had sued arguing that the rule would do irreparable harm to their ability to regulate their own waterways, had a good chance of prevailing in the case. The rule had been scheduled to go into effect August 28.
