Q&A: High Court Wades Into Logging’s Muddy Waters

The Supreme Court Monday heard arguments in a case that looks at the regulation of muddy water that flows off logging roads. The case was originally filed in Oregon, by an environmental group that said logging roads in state forests were violating the Clean Water Act.

EarthFix journalist Amelia Templeton has been following the case and joins me now.

On July 25th, Gov. Jerry Brown announced (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-water-tunnel-20120726,0,5647580.story ) plans to build two large 37-mile underground tunnels to divert Sacramento River water around the Delta to San Joaquin Valley agriculture and southern municipalities.

Connections Found between East-West Highway, Canadian Fracking Fields, and Searsport LPG Tank

Chris Buchanan, published 3-12-12 in the Morning Sentinel

Canada is developing natural gas fracking fields in Quebec and New Brunswick, and a liquid petroleum gas tank is proposed for Searsport.

Passamaquoddy moving ahead to build Bottling Plant

DW4L was alarmed to find out that the Passamaquoddy Tribal Leaders have returned to the idea to tap one of the largest aquifers in Maine, and build a bottling plant. Under the guise of creating jobs, the Tribe now faces even more exploitation, if they give up the rights to their water. In addition, the proposed plant is located dangerously close to the proposed East-West highway, ensuring exploitation by the global market.

Tethys is a negative proposition for good business in Anacortes. Records of other water bottling plants show that the number of jobs Tethys promises is not reliable. The actual […]
