    What about state regulations and management? That is a bunch of federal spending BS.

    Says the guy from a state that is ranked 4th most dependent on funding from the federal government

    http://www.businessinsider.com/the-...st-dependent-on-the-federal-government-2015-7

    There won't be any comprehensive state management. You think the farmers and government in South Dakota give a crap about the effect on state downstream from of all the agricultural runoff in the Missouri? I can assure you they don't. It's likely very similar for every other state. I would thing the Gulf Coast states should be more concerned that most given that they are on the receiving end of everything that gets dumped int the Mississippi River watershed.

    The EPA and the department of education both need to be cut by 2/3 to eliminated altogether. Washington doesn't solve problems or protect it's citizens, causes problems and undue expenses.
    It should be handled at the state level.

    This has all the signs of turning into a "yellow water" squirting contest. It really belongs in the political forum where folks can discuss it with civility.
    It's getting so that I don't even want to visit here regular.

    Recommend everyone do some research on the 2015 regulations that were due to be implemented.

    For starters, it went far beyond current federal control over blue line streams, extending federal oversight to basically all runoff water in the entire country including but not limited to that which pours off your roof during a rainstorm.

    It was decried as another mammoth power grab by Rome (er, D.C.) similar to that of the ACA.

    As the devil always hides in the details, look it up, educate and inform yourself so intelligent opinions can be formed in lieu of the usual hyperbole that emanates from both sides.

    TU, DU, TRCP and several other pro-hunting groups are against this. That's far from tree huggers. This has the potential to have a broad impact on fishing and hunting areas and how viable they are.

    This isn't about tree huggers vs. hunters.

    It's about another massive federal government intrusion into our daily lives.

    Put it in this perspective, how "bad" were things prior to 2015? Was the world ending because of the status quo?

    IMO, it is another case of the operation was successful, never mind the fact the patient died.

    Du you really think we would be better off with NO regulation from the Feds in regards to this subject? Ever see what Lake Erie and areas around mining communities looked like before companies were forced to stop polluting everything all in the name to save money?

    Spoken like a true person who doesn't give a crap about the condition of the environment that they leave to their grandchildren.

    What about watersheds that cross state lines? Try and get two states to agree with each other, especially when one state is dumping their waste into another state.
