Water Regulation Proposals Controversial

Many in agriculture are concerned about what is commonly referred to as “The Waters of the U.S. Rule.” This “rule” involves the Clean Water Act, and what many fear is an attempt by EPA to reinterpret the Act in ways that would make even small bodies of water like ditches and ponds subject to regulation and thereby impose new restrictions on common agricultural practices like fertilizer and herbicide application. A public comments period regarding the Clean Water Act proposals is open through Oct. 20.
