Wildwood Crest - The Trump Administration will remove an Obama-era regulation that protected 60% of the nation's waterways. Under President Trump's new rule, landowners will be able to dump pollutants, including fertilizers and pesticides, into waterways and destroy wetlands for construction projects, The New York Times reported Jan. 22. Trump called the regulation "horrible" and "destructive," and repealed it in September. The Trump Administration has eliminated or weakened dozens of environmental regulations and laws, including those that protect endangered species and combat pollution.
