One Response to Commissioners Recognize Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s 50 Years of Service

    35 years ago the CBF learned that EPA never implemented the CWA, due to a faulty test ignoring nitrogenous waste (urine and proteins) in sewage. Because, at that time, such test correction would have interfered with lawsuits, this clear violation of the CWA was conveniently ignored by most national environmental groups. Now 35 years later the CBF still ignores the fact that this waste is not required to be treated under the CWA, by blaming this now called nutrient pollution on the runoffs from mostly farms and cities.
    How can anybody blame farmers for this type of pollution, when the same pollution is ignored in municipal sewage?
