When talking about the EPA it usually stinks.
Check it out:
You know how the rest of that statement goes. I can’t help but think of it when I read, hear or talk about the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed rule to redefine what waters fall under federal jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act (CWA).
Before I go any further, let me make one thing clear: Responsibly managing water resources should not simply be a “check the box” and “do the minimum necessary” practice. As an industry that relies on clean water for our animals, our crops, our survival, implementing sound water-management practices better be looked at as a make it or break it issue for every single farming and ranching operation across the United States — regardless of location, size or animal or crop you grow. Without water nothing else matters. Period.
