  1. Yes we can blame farmers, but as long as we keep using our rivers as giant urinals nothing will change. EPA does not consider nitrogenous (urine and protein) waste a pollutant, while this waste like carbonaceous (fecal) waste, exerts an oxygen demand, but in addition is a fertilizer for algae growth.
    EPA never implemented the Clean water Act as was intended, because of a faulty pollution test, it based its regulatory program on.
