Washington, DC -- A federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona has vacated the Trump administration's “Navigable Waters Protection Rule.” Otherwise known as the “Dirty Water Rule”, this policy curtailed water pollution protections for many streams, wetlands, and drinking water sources.

In deciding the suit brought by Earthjustice and six tribes, the court found that the Trump administration's Navigable Waters Protection Rule would cause “serious environmental harm". At issue is the question of what water is protected by the landmark Clean Water Act's water pollution programs.
