La clean Waler Rule in effect despite court ruling by Matthew Daly the associated press Washington a the environmental Protection Agency says it is going Forward with a new Federal Rule to protect Small streams tributaries and wetlands despite a court ruling that blocked the measure in 13 Central and Western states. The Epa says the Rule which took effect Friday in More than three dozen states will safeguard drinking water for Mill Ems of americans. Opponents pledged to continue to fight the Rule emboldened by a Federal court decision thursday that blocked it from Alaska to Arkansas. Quot we see this Rule As very hurtful to Farmers Ami ranchers and we re going to do everything to Stop it politically Quot said Don Parrish of the american farm Bureau federation one of several farm and business groups that have filed suit against the regulation.

The new Rule would Force a permitting process Only if a business or landowner took Steps that would pol Lute or destroy the affected Waters Liaise with a a direct and significant Quot connection to larger bodies of water downstream that Are already protected. That could include tributaries that show evidence of flow ing water for example.
