Yep, we had clean water for all of those years. A good example is the Cayadutta Creek running through Gloversville and elsewhere in various colors of the rainbow.

this country was established in the early 1700's and until the EPA came into existence in I believe in 1970 how did this country survive all those years with out the Almighty EPA We had and managed to have clean water that was used for drinking, cooking, canning preserves, washing and cleaning. We spent much time and money replanting trees and thinning out wood lots that were over grown. So please tell me what the EPA has done that improves on what we were already doing.

who are the saving the environment for at the rate the EPA is doing more harm to the environment by allowing all the chemicals to be used and dumped on the ground and running into the water. Why don't they stop all the chemical pollution that is destroying our environment? Example of EPA and the state encon is that they allow the state and county highway departments to use rock salt on the roads for snow and ice control during the winter and the local towns are not allowed to use the salt?

Somebody please tell me why do we need the EPA??? In NYS we have the Dept. of ENVIRONMENTAL Conservation. My objection is the EPA interferes with States Rights. Many Fed. Agencies do but it seems too many citizens care enough to do anything about it. Scare, as an aside the answer I like to give when a liberal pulls the old 'Don't you like clean air and water' or any other similarly shallow and pedantic question is 'Who doesn't? I just don't like liberals' constantly changing definitions so is there a question in there?" It then becomes hard for them to answer the question and the personal attacks commence as I walk away chuckling.

Actually ToT, the EPA is required by law to engage local business, local gov't, and other local organizations to determine the effect of a rule/regulation on the local economy. Have there been some ridiculous regulations? Absolutely. That's why it's important to be a part of the process & make every effort to change absurd/unrealistic rules/regulations.

The EPA couldn't care any less about the effects its regulations have on the economy. They would starve people to save the spotted tootsie birds habitat. It is time that we told them what we want rather than they forcing unfair and unjust laws on the American people.

The EPA has grown from something we needed to something that obstructs progress at every turn. The agency needs some serous revamping and needs to have its powers limited.

Now wait for it. The Progressives (?????) will scream " Don't you like clean air and water?" We have clean air and clean water. But ask the better question. What is Clean air? What is clean water?
