Clean Water Act Muddies Seepage

Two recent federal courts found that if there is a point source of pollution and the polution travels via groundwater to a navigable stream within 1000 feet, there is a Clean Water Act violation.

 

You'd better hope the liner in the sewage lagoon is tight.

The court did not find that ground water was WOTUS, but what difference does that make in this situation?

This smells to me of the camel's nose under the tent.  Next thing you know the whole camel is inside.  Then you have situations like the Detroit water supply.

Re: Clean Water Act Muddies Seepage

Perfect example........ first thing I thought of this week when reading the amazon man's interviews and the stock movement last week.....

So much money he's thinking of some outer space travel...... and maybe it was a joke out of context..... and there is a lot of viewpoints on detroit and its rot from within.

But question is can we depend on our financially rich or our political leadership to actually help solve problems?  After all those two groups have spent "billions and billions and billions" to promote the demise of the piston engine.  Will they ever feel responsible or empathy to those in the path of destruction created when we demonize the past.

 

And is the technology or lifestyle of the future worth the cost to us if it must crush the past to prove its worth?  Anyway our new Vanderbilts and Rockefellers out west probably are not going to be one bit more better that their predecessors.
