We’ve been waiting for this rule for more than 3 years!
On December 11, 2018, EPA proposed a revised definition of “waters of the United States,” which would clarify regulatory authority under the Clean Water Act. You would not need a lawyer or consultant to know what is, and what is not, regulated.
Farmers and ranchers care about clean water and work hard to protect our natural resources. As farmers and ranchers continue to reduce the environmental footprint of farming and ranching, they need a new common-sense water rule that protects water quality and gives them clear rules they can follow.
Farmers understand the things they do on the farm, enhance the environment they rely on. It goes hand in hand. Which is why we need clean water and clear rules.
We know ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST GROUPS desperately want to impose and enforce the over-reaching 2015 Obama Rule. Predictably, they are gearing-up their fundraising and mass-comment campaigns to stop EPA which would leave you with a complex rule requiring lawyers and consultants to determine if and how you can farm!
We cannot let the voice of the opposition drown out your voice. Farmers and ranchers are calling for a clear rule that protects agriculture AND clean water.
Now is the time to show your support for the new Clean Water rule.
