The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Stream buffer zone removal

The Bush administration has won another victory in its war on the Environment. The EPA approved a last minute rule change on Tuesday which will rewrite a regulation enacted in 1983 that bars the dumping of huge waste piles within 100 feet of any stream or creek.

The new rule change is opposed by both Kentucky andmountaintop removal Tennessee governors as well as other area legislators.

The regions most affected are some of the poorest in the nation and in our back yard. I can't help but to wonder what other midnight regulations the Bush team has in store for us?
