When I lived in Western Kansas, The Arkansas River was listed as a navigable stream. It was bone dry most of the time.
Good. That U.N. River Navigator nonsense was B.S. from the get go. I hope he slapped the snot out of all of it.
A wonderful improvement. The federal government has been asserting control over lands which have been totally and completely un-navigable since Noah’s Flood.
Some of these lands are indeed the very downtown districts of cities with 5, 7, even 10 story buildings!
Its been crazy as a bedbug on a bender
This man deserves a pardon as well.
Minorities, women and children hardest hit.
A few more nonsense like that removed, and we might have a real economy...
Throughout N. California we have seasonal dry streams, that only have water flowing in winter and early spring.
The green eco nazis have used these seasonal dry streams to hammer and punish any land owner for daring to try and control seasonal flows.
They have made Vernal pools a no go for a whole year even if the vernal pools last a few weeks.
Below is the bs Goddess worship of these mud puddles:
California’s Vernal Pools - Department of Fish and Wildlife
Jun 17, 2013 - Vernal pools are a type of temporary wetland, and are some of the most ecologically important and distinctive areas in California. Vernal pools .
It’s probably no coincidence that American wages began stagnating in the early 1970s when the EPA was created.
EPA red tape has seriously delayed and wholly prevented all sorts of businesses ever since. It’s one reason that manufacturing abandoned the US.
In California the EPA has prevented the use of Sacramento Delta water by declaring the Delta Smelt an endangered species.
It has worsened our fires by preventing the removal of fuel from forests.
Wanna know just how DUMB the EPA wetland laws are?
In Florida, a developer wants to fill in some swampy area and build. To do that, the acres of wet land must be substituted someplace else. That place is Colorado. By flooding some land in Colorado, the developer in Florida can fill in some land.
That’s just how dumb the EPA and the liberals are.
As a real estate agent I used to have to advise potential land sellers to drain and fill any mud puddles and rid themselves of any wetlands vegetation (not growing in true wetlands) on their properties before offering them for sale. I saw buildable properties declared wetlands by faceless bureaucrats, which rendered them of no value.
