Will new EPA rule protect more Wisconsin streams?

Some Wisconsin waters and their sources are already under assault, like the Little Plover river as documented by the River Alliance of Wisconsin - -
- - and the state under Walker is enabling the release of weed-producing phosphorus pollution into Wisconsin waterways - -

I'm hoping there is relief on the way through a new rule announced by the US Environmental Protection Agency under the Federal Clean Water Act after years of studies and meetings.

Resistance by Walker's "chamber of commerce mentality" Department of Natural Resources, which along with his Public Service Commission, is already fighting new EPA clean air standards.

Taconite Sen.Tommy Tiffany will fight these EPA protections as there isn't a natural resource in Wisconsin that he believes shouldn't be exploited for personal profit!
