The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Army are moving forward with a plan to revise a Trump-era rule change that put 90 percent of Arizona waterways at risk.
Unfortunately, says an environmental group that previously sued over the change, the fix might not come fast enough to prevent damage.
“The concern is what’s going to happen in the meanwhile… a lot of damage could happen in Arizona over the coming year,” said Brett Hartl, the government affairs director for the Center for Biological Diversity in Washington D.C. “You’ll see from us and others a general disappointment that it’s not going to happen faster, but it’s better than nothing.”
