Lawsuits Quickly Follow EPA's New Water Regulation

States are forming coalitions to challenge the EPA's new "Waters of the United States" Rule, filing four lawsuits to overturn the regulation.

The Waters Rule would specifically give EPA jurisdiction over smaller streams that the EPA says are connected to larger water supplies. The states say the Federal government is intruding on state powers.

The story include maps showing the states challenging the rule and the number of people get drinking water from smaller streams.
