This article is about how farmers are scared that new environmental regulations that are going to be passed are going to cost them a lot of time and money. These regulations concern “Clean Water”. For example, if on your farm there is a stream or “ditch” that even collects water only when it rains, it needs to pass the “Clean Water Assessment” for you to legally be allowed to farm and sell your products to the public. There have been farmers that have been planting on the same land for years and years and now all of this might be in jeopardy. There is a big controversy going on about whether it is rational to go through all these extreme measures to test even the smallest “bodies of water” and if that will even harm the consumers of the goods being planted on these farms.
