NCGA Weighs In With EPA On Water Regulations

NCGA Weighs In With EPA On Water Regulations

This week, The Environmental Protection Agency held a meeting of their scientific advisory committee that included representatives from the National Corn Growers Association. First Vice President Chip Bowling, a Maryland grower who lives near the Chesapeake Bay was at that event. He says as the agency formulates rules under the Clean Water Act, they need to make sure the rules are practical and follow good science as well as make sense.

Bowling says his and other ag groups want EPA to know they shouldn’t be broadening their authority in areas where it doesn’t make sense like regulating every pool of water on a farm.

Bowling is hoping EPA heard their concerns and will move forward with rules that are reasonable and based on good science.
