The Environmental Protection Agency has made it easier for cities to keep dumping raw sewage into rivers by letting them delay or otherwise change federally imposed fixes to their sewer systems, according to interviews with local officials, water utilities and their lobbyists.

If Trump's "-------- Syndrome" voters are good with this, they are the ones who are clueless.

And yet his supporters will be ok with this. They might line up to take a sip. Trump could convince some of his acolytes to shoot themselves for him, in front of their families, immediately after voting for their Dotard...

Instead of draining the swamp he's adding E. coli to it.

"EPA issues violation notice to San Francisco

Here's the catch:

"Wheeler's letter to the governor last week didn't lay out any specifics on possible disciplinary actions, although they could include withholding funds or revoking California's authority to administer federal laws such as the Clean Water Act. The latter would seem highly unlikely, however, because EPA would have to assume the expense of running the programs itself."

The Trump administration has quietly made it easier for cities to keep dumping raw sewage into rivers

There's a lot of money to be made from polluting.

Trump is filling up his offshore bank account for when he has to flee the country and find a nice bungalow in Argentina.

If this thing gets that far, people will be found to go get him.

Argentina? Hardly. More like Russia where he will be greeted as a hero.

Greeted for sure, but not as a hero. Russians are smarter than that. More likely as a useful idiot.

Both San Francisco and Los Angeles are in violation for running raw sewage into the rivers, because the homeless use the sidewalks as a toilet. Wash down the streets to clean them and where does the water and crap go? Into the storm drain and into the river, then to the sea.

Whine and point at liberals. As if liberals somehow created the homeless population.

#14 | Posted by danni Seems that only ultra-liberal states have a problem with staggering amounts of homeless living on the sidewalks.

You mean the states with the biggest cities? You ever wonder why all the biggest cities are "liberal"? Or why even in the reddest states, the largest cities are the most liberal? Maybe it's a result of lots of different kinds of people living together...

#18 | Posted by OCUser If that happens it will be because of all the Californians moving in.
#19 | Posted by WhoDaMan Really? Four of the ten largest Metro areas in the country are in Texas.

#19 | Posted by WhoDaMan, You have never been in the state of Texas have you? If you had you might notice that only California has more immigrants. Texas is exceptionally cosmopolitan. We just have the wisdom of allowing our state legislators six weeks every other year to meet. With such a compressed legislative calendar, they seldom have time to do any thing silly. Like banning plastic straws.

Or enacting some common sense zoning ordinances which could have prevented something like the West, TX, disaster as well as the flooding of all those homes built on flood planes around Houston.

Actually, I spent a lot of time in the Dallas area in the early 80's. I've also been to Houston and Austin. Are you claiming that those cities are as conservative as their suburbs and exurbs? I used to stay in Irving when I was there and noticed that it was "dry". But Dallas isn't dry, is it? There's one difference right there.
