Yes, the EPA now regulates puddles

For decades, conservative have warned that the Environmental Protection Agency -- which uses fear and ignorance about the environment to push its socialistic agenda -- would someday regulate puddles.

The day has come. The Daily Caller reported: "EPA Grants Itself Power To Regulate Ponds, Ditches, Puddles."

From the Daily Caller:
The EPA has released its Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule critics say would allow the agency to regulate waterways previously not under federal jurisdiction, including puddles, ditches and isolated wetlands.
Republicans, farmers and industrial groups have called the rule an EPA “power grab” because it extends the agency’s powers to new heights. Environmentalists and the Obama administration, however, argue the WOTUS rule is necessary for protecting water quality.
The Constitution limits federal powers to navigable waters.

The current regime invalidated the Constitution years ago.


  1. Nothing new here. A few years ago I was putting in a driveway, and the corps of engineers shut us down, though we had permits from 4 different agencies. They gave us a memo, where they changed "open bodies of water" to mean any water found by digging up to three feet down. They had to dig 2.5 feet down for water on my boss's lot, while a neighboring lot was draining a natural pond without being shut down.

  2. Thank you Richard Nixon for the EPA. Bah! And Republicans are for smaller government?

  3. Another reason to destroy the EPA. Just cut its budget and headcount by 75% and put the last 25% to work evaluating the cost benefit of all the rules they have ever made.
