EPA’s Waters of the US Rule “Blocked” Nationwide
US EPA’s new “Waters of the US Rule” took effect on August 28, 2015, which grants EPA authority to regulate more bodies of water under its Clean Water Act program.
Read about the hotly contested US EPA “WOTUS” rulemaking here.
In August, on the day the new Clean Water entered into effect, a Federal judge issued a temporary injunction to delay enforcement. EPA agreed at that time to hold off enforcing the new requirements, but only in the thirteen US states named in the petition.
To make it clear that the new Stay applies to all US states, the Order issued on Friday, October 9 explicitly states, “The Clean Water Rule is hereby STAYED, nationwide, pending further order of the court.”

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.

Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
EH&S Facility Maintenance & Security Manager
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
