WOTUS Ruling Creates Confusion

“What do you do if you are a landowner in those 37 states who seeks to use your land in ways you always have, and now you have the EPA saying it has jurisdiction over your water—over dry creek bed in some cases—and you have to get a permit from them with respect to doing something on your land, (whether it’s) farming or ranching or the rest?” Pruitt said. “It is a very precarious place around the country right now with respect to land use and the EPA.”

WOTUS Ruling Creates Confusion

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual   As attorney general of Oklahoma, where the EPA’s controversial “Clean Water Rule” supposedly goes into effect today, Scott Pruitt sounds fed up—and understandably so.

On Thursday, a federal judge in North Dakota Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian Viewblocked the implementation of the “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule, which extends EPA’s jurisdiction to even small streams on private land, saying it posed a risk of “irreparable harm.”

That decision applies to the 13 states involved in that particular case, and many expected it to cover the other 37 states that have lawsuits pending on the very same regulation.

The situation only exacerbates the frustration that Pruitt and others, including farmers and ranchers, feel toward the rule.

“What do you do if you are a landowner in those 37 states who seeks to use your land in ways you always have, and now you have the EPA saying it has jurisdiction over your water—over dry creek bed in some cases—and you have to get a permit from them with respect to doing something on your land, (whether it’s) farming or ranching or the rest?” Pruitt said. “It is a very precarious place around the country right now with respect to land use and the EPA.”

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
