EPA rewrites limitso toxic wastesThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to rewrite limits on toxic waste from power plants, the agency said in a court filing this week.

Agency officials in April delayed compliance deadlines for the rule, a 2015 directive from the Obama administration that set limits on toxic water pollution from certain coal-fired power plants.

The agency said this week that it would rewrite the limits on pollution from bottom ash, scrubbers and coal gasification plants, signaling a new deregulatory push for the fossil fuel sector.

“I have decided that it is appropriate and in the best public interest to conduct a rule-making to potentially revise” some of the rule, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt wrote in a letter to the Small Business Association and lawyers for the Utility Water Act Group on Friday. The two organizations had asked the EPA to reconsider the regulations.
