Wetlands Protection

Wetlands Protection

FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2012, file photo, a small amount of water is seen in a pond in the cattle pasture that serves as the water source for a cattle ranch in Tallula, Ill. Industry groups and more than a dozen GOP senators are urging the Obama administration to reconsider a proposal by the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers. The new rule seeks to clarify which waters or wetlands would trigger federal requirements, such as permitting and state water quality certification. Seasonal and rain-dependent streams, and wetlands near rivers and streams, would be covered; others would be considered on a case-by-case basis to determine if they play a significant role in the quality of downstream waters. Landowners and developers say the government has gone too far in regulating isolated ponds or marshes with no direct connection to navigable waterways. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman, File)
