WASHINGTON (Feb. 6, 2020) — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the 2019 Year in Review outlining major accomplishments and environmental progress during the Trump administration.
“Under President Trump, we have fulfilled many promises to the American people to address some of our most important environmental and human health challenges while unleashing the economy and fostering innovation,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “In 2019, EPA deleted 27 Superfund sites — the largest number of sites deleted from the National Priorities List since FY 2001 — and proposed the first update to the Lead and Copper Rule in nearly three decades. This administration is building on a long history of environmental success for example in the past three years, EPA has re-designated 36 areas around the country, moving them into attainment with federal air quality standards and lifting major regulatory burdens off local businesses, and all six criteria air pollutants have decreased. As we celebrate our 50th year of EPA, I am honored to lead an agency with such a successful record.”
