  1. I understood that the EPA’s mission is to protect the natural environment from people.
    Arsenic found in drinking water is usually part of the natural environment, not something added by people as pollution.

    Therefore, when the EPA takes action to mitigate the amount of arsenic in drinking water from natural sources, the EPA seems to be protectinhg people from the natural environment.

    Is this part of the EPA’s mandate as set out in law or is it something the EPA does that is outside their mandate and nobody objects because it seems to be a good thing to do?
