Here's the next invasion of your privacy and theft of your freedom...the Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA) (S787)
The proposed Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA) (S787), which has no House bill number yet, will give the Corps and EPA control over your property and water.
The Real Goal of the Clean Water Restoration Act (S787) is to give the Corps of Engineers and EPA Control over your water and all of your watersheds. That means National Land Use Controls as well as control over all of your water and land. That's because all land is in a watershed.
It will redefine what the term "wetlands" means in the law. It will eliminate the requirement that the Corps and EPA limit their jurisdiction to"Navigable" waters and give those agencies control over any water or "activities" affecting water, thus reversing two Supreme Court Decisions, the Rapanos and SWANCC Supreme Court Decisions of 2006 and 2001.
The bill is a double whammy: It expands the definition of waters and gives the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Corps of Engineers (Corps) and other Federal agencies control over activities that affect waters. That means any land use activities.
Besides private property, the Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA) (S787) threatens businesses, agriculture, small communities, grazing, forestry, mining and many other uses on private and Federal land. It will affect many kinds of manufacturing companies and businesses.
The Clean Water Restoration Act is a massive land and water grab.
