Oklahoma faces federal takeover of water

EPA’s war on chlorinated drinking water continues.

“The federal government will assume control over water regulations in Oklahoma this summer unless the state spends $2 million to come into compliance with water quality standards. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets water quality rules and states enforce them. Oklahoma’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has been unable to implement a number of regulations pertaining to microbial pathogens and disinfection byproducts adopted in 2005 and 2006.” [GIMBY.org]
