The Water is Already Clean


Farmers doing enough to keep the bay clean

According to this article, water leaving NYS for the Chesapeake Bay watershed ALREADY meets EPA standards as per their own monitoring stations. So why do our state's farmers have to make more expensive changes in the way they grow our food?

It is a lot like the whole thing with exhaust coming out of tractors cleaner than the air that goes in under new regulations. They are out of control and have totally lost contact with reality....

California farmers are being told to grow crops that don't need water.

Reality?

Jan, that is so sad....do you have links to any stories I could read about it by chance? I would love to write about it in my farm column.

Linda, day after day. I am getting pretty discouraged these days. We are outnumbered and out gunned.

REbecca, I have and it is more than just a little bit worrisome. They aren't going to stop until you need a permit to plant a carrot!
