WATER RULE REVERSAL A BLOW TO AGRICULTURE

Water Rule Reversal A Blow To Agriculture

American and Montana Farm Bureau Federations were extremely disappointed on hearing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcement of its intention to reverse the Navigable Waters Protection Rule.

“The American Farm Bureau Federation is extremely dismayed in the Environmental Protection Agency’s announcement of its intention to reverse the environmentally conscious Navigable Waters Protection Rule, which finally brought clarity and certainty to clean water efforts. Farmers and ranchers care about clean water and preserving the land, and they support the Navigable Waters Protection Rule,” American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall.

“Interestingly, during our Montana Farm Bureau Summer Conference that just wrapped up, we had several speakers who cautioned this proposed reversal of the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) was coming down the pike,” noted MFBF President Hans McPherson. “It’s extremely discouraging that after all of the work and collaboration to develop a water rule that was good for farmers yet still protected the environment, this current Administration is angling to reverse the very flawed WOTUS. The EPA is failing to recognize the very realistic concerns of farmers and ranchers.”
