Drain the swamp...into America's streams

The Environmental Protection Agency announced today it is finalizing a rule that will drop protections for millions of miles of streams and millions of acres of wetlands, putting watersheds at risk for countless Americans.

The new rule would eliminate Clean Water Act protections from millions of miles of small headwater streams, and millions of acres of wetlands. This action would curtail common-sense oversight of many currently regulated activities, such as oil and gas development and pipelines.

Why would the richest country in the world want to poison its environment just so that it can have more money?

so you are saying industrial companies are going to truck their pollutants in 4X4s hundreds of miles to small ephemeral (meaning sometimes they exist and sometimes they dont) headwater streams? I wouldn't get too worked up about it

Anyone with a mine or factory can pick a dry spot (perhaps the one right next to their location) and dump their waste. When the next melt or heavy rain comes and washes that waste into larger bodies of water, they are not responsible.
