Environmental Science Unit 5 Discussion Board May 25, 2011 Kregg M. Soltow American Intercontinental University The Clean Water Act or CWA is a significant federal environmental law affecting the agriculture of the grain belt states. The CWA was initially enacted by Congress in 1972 and since then has been revised multiple times. The CWA’s primary objective is to reduce and in best case eliminate all water pollution within the nation's rivers, lakes, and streams. Many varieties of methods are used by the CWA to manage and organize domestic, manufacturing, and undeveloped pollution. Many different kinds of agricultural actions and practices have been scrutinized under the Clean Water Act statute. A primary example would be the direct expulsions from feedlots in the U.S. The U.S. It is also good to know that the Environmental Protection Agency or (EPA) is in charge of enforcing the CWA and not the individual states as it should be. Was there any controversy surrounding this law? Why? Who opposed it?
