Was the Partnership Project involved with EPA’s new water rule?
From the Columbus Dispatch:
New EPA water rules spark worries
It might seem odd that local agencies responsible for protecting and improving soil and water would oppose new federal clean-water rules.
But that might be the official stance of the Delaware Soil and Water Conservation District when it meets soon to discuss the issue and document its concerns.
And Delaware County commissioners, developers and farmers also worry about the expanded definition of waterways by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Federal regulators that previously had jurisdiction over “navigable waterways” will, beginning on Aug. 28, oversee tiny tributaries, backyard streams and even dry creek beds.
