The FFB Oppose Water Regulation Proposal

The Florida Farm Bureau has vocally announced its opposition to new water quality standards proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The FFB feels that the new plan places an excessive water tax on citizens through an increasing sewer bill and will place a burden on Florida producers.
“For nearly a decade, Florida’s agricultural community has been proud to cooperate with other businesses and government agencies in the state’s Total Maximum Daily Loads program,” FFB President John L. Hoblick said in a news release. “The TMDL program, which established numeric nutrient criteria based on watersheds, has caused Florida to be recognized as a national leader in water quality protection and restoration. This action by EPA abruptly changes that.”
The EPA’s plan puts a limit on phosphorous and nitrogen which are nutrients found in fertilizer and wastewater. The standards would decrease the amount of pollution in drinking water.
