Shifting currents in debate over water rules

Published 4/17/2010 The Gainesville Sun
The issue began last year when EPA announced it was imposing its own rules for nitrogen and phosphorus levels because the Florida Department of Environmental Protection had failed to establish numerical standards of its own. The new standards would effect the state’s lakes, canals, rivers, estuaries and springs.

Those who oppose the standards complain that EPA’s proposals are flawed, based on bad science, and would wreak financial havoc on a state that already faces its worst recession of the past 70 years.
