Trump's order will also direct the Justice Department to ask a federal court to put legal challenges to the rule on hold as the administration conducts its review, the official said.

President Donald Trump honored a campaign promise made to home builders when he signed an executive order directing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to begin the process of rescinding or revising the controversial "Waters of the United States" (WOTUS) rule.

Legal experts point out that Trump's orders on their own will have no effect on the climate change regulations or the water rule.

Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, said the rule "should be taken out behind the barn and put out of its misery". In a separate lawsuit, on October 9, 2015, a divided federal appeals court stayed the rule's application nationwide.

Currently, the US determines what waters are protected under a Bush-era law, according to Michael Kelly, director of communications at Clean Water Action.

Finalized in 2015 with widespread public and scientific support, the Rule restored federal protections to half the nation's streams, which help provide drinking water to one in every three Americans. "That's why this unworkable federal rule - which creates uncertainty about the waters EPA can regulate - would hit our family farmers and rural communities so hard".

Supporters of the Clean Water rule, like Kelly, say the law was instituted to protect drinking water and to advance the national goal of making all water In the United States "fishable, swimmable and drinkable".

The executive order instructs the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers to begin reviewing and revising the Waters of the US rule to "ensure it promotes economic growth and minimizes uncertainty", CNN reported. Farmers and landowners have criticized the rule and Republicans have been trying to get rid of it from its inception.

"The flawed WOTUS rule has proven to be nothing more than a federal land grab, aimed at telling farmers and ranchers how to run their businesses", American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said in a statement emailed to NBC News. This is a question the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to resolve sometime next year.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, called Trump's order excellent news and said Nebraska farmers and ranchers won't shed a single tear over the rule's demise.

Property owners, meanwhile, will continue to grapple with the question of whether they need a Clean Water Act permit for activities on their land.
