EPA Weakening Clean Water Act, Experts Say

Noah Hall suggests in his blog posting that the Bush administration's EPA will allow transfers between bodies of water, without Clean Water Act permits, though pollutants could travel from a polluted water source to a cleaner one.

Dave Dempsey blogs about it, too.

If the EPA's position is not defeated in court, I could see this presenting water quality problems for some proposed Great Lakes diversions, or their return flow arrangements.

You wouldn't want a diversion or a return flow arrangement to bring pollution along with it, would you?

I'm sure we will hear more about this.
