EPA wants rule to regulate ‘significant nexus’ waters: Hoeven: Proposal could bring lawsuits for US producers

Email

WASHINGTON - A proposed rule from federal agencies could leave agriculture producers liable for water that flows into navigable waterways.

The comment period for the “waters of the United States” rule is open. The rule would allow the Environment Protection Agency to regulate any water source that flows into a navigable body of water, such as streams, lakes or reservoirs.

But Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., believes the rule could lead to lawsuits for farmers and ranchers.

Hi. I'm the assistant editor of The Dickinson Press and I'll be your tour guide. I grew up on a ranch 10 miles southeast of Belfield, or 10 miles southwest of South Heart. I was right in the middle. Anyways, my family raises registered Hereford cattle on the ranch, where I learned a lot of valuable lessons. I went to school at Belfield Public School, graduating in the last class as the Belfield Bantams. I then double majored in communications and history/political science at Jamestown College. After three years of working for the now University of Jamestown's newspaper, The Collegian, I joined the staff at The Dickinson Press as the Dickinson City government and energy reporter. I moved on to the Hazen Star and Center Republican as an editor before being pulled back to Dickinson. And here I am. As someone that grew up and lived in North Dakota for 25 years, I never thought that our corner of the state would ever change. But time has a way of proving me wrong. In the midst of one of the largest oil booms that state has seen I get to watch it all and tell everyone about it. I can't wait to see what happens next.
