VOA常速英语:特朗普政府大幅减少对本国溪流等环境资源的保护

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-02-02   English BBS   Favorite  

The Trump administration on Thursday ended federal protection for many of the nation's millions of kilometers of streams, arroyos and wetlands, a sweeping environmental rollback that could leave the waterways more vulnerable to pollution, that is, from development, industry and farms.
The move narrows the types of waterways that qualify for federal protection under the Clean Water Act.
EPA assistant administrator David Ross says the water rule doesn't mean that states can't extend protection to waters as they deem necessary.

This is not a rule that presumes if the federal government doesn't regulate, there is no regulation. That has been a fault of the former administrations, and it is simply not true.
Environmental groups and public health advocates say the rollbacks will allow businesses to dump pollutants into uNPRotected waterways, fill in wetlands and threaten public water supplies downstream while harming wildlife and habitat.
