Environmental Protection Agency
July 26, 2010--EPA to study impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water; seeks public input (Environmental News Network)
This July and August, the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") is holding a series of public meetings seeking input on the design for an upcoming study to assess the effect of hydraulic fracturing on public drinking water supplies. Hydraulic fracturing uses high-pressured water, combined with chemicals, to release natural gas present underground in shale formations.
The world has entered a new geologic epoch, in which human activities will largely determine the planet's evolution, reports the United States' chief scientific body, the National Academy of Sciences.
The Environmental Protection Agency will step up efforts to monitor the nation’s thousands of factory farms. This week the E.P.A. reached a settlement of a lawsuit filed last year by environmental groups arguing that the agency needs to pay closer attention to the effects of the livestock industry on waterways.
The legislation would prohibit manufacturers from using all but a tiny fraction of lead in making or selling water faucets and fixtures. Tainted water is estimated to count for up 20 percent of human lead exposure, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just added more than 6,300 chemicals and 3,800 chemical facilities regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to a public database called Envirofacts.
If you build it, they will come. And, if you don't, they won't. Such is the thinking behind a policy released late last month by the Environmental Protection Agency that instructs states to adopt smart-growth principles in allocating the $3.3 billion in water infrastructure funding that the federal government doles out each year.
Polls show that tackling climate change is a low priority for the American public. Indeed, a Yale poll found that only 12 percent of Americans were “very worried” about global warming.
Less than a month after trying yet another solution to clear up Norwood’s drinking water, the town staff are turning figurative cartwheels over the results. Norwood water finally came out clean. Really clean. “We are very excited,” said Town Administrator Patti Grafmyer.
The state and water users need to get the Environmental Protection Agency on board sooner in the planning process of providing water for future generations, a member of Gov. Bill Ritter's Cabinet said Wednesday.
Taxing rainfall may seem odd, but new environmental regulations are prompting cities to impose fees on property owners for managing storm-water runoff. The Environmental Protection Agency, for the first time, has begun issuing specific limits on this runoff, since it's a leading cause of pollution in U.S. waterways.
