Lawsuits Challenge Replacement WOTUS Rule

A coalition of states and cities, two different coalitions of environmental groups [1, 2], and a coalition of Native American tribes all have filed suit against the Environmental Protection Agency, challenging the Waters of the United States replacement rule. The rule excludes wetlands that do not have surface water connections to intermittent or perennial streams, streams that only flow during rainfall or snowmelt, and prior converted cropland.
