This is a must read. April 30 Deadline for Testimony.
—–The Real Goal of HR 2421, the Clean Water Restoration Act Is to give Corps and EPA Control Of All Watersheds Which Means National Land Use Control. It will give the Corps and EPA control over your property.
—–Besides private property, HR 2421 threatens businesses, agriculture, small communities, grazing, forestry, mining and many other uses on private and Federal land. It will affect many kinds of manufacturing companies and businesses.
—–Congress is considering expanding the jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act of 1972 to include all waters of the United States and all “activities affecting these waters.” not limit it to “navigable waters” as is currently the law under two Supreme Court Decisions, the Rapanos and SWANCC Supreme Court Decisions of 2006 and 2001.
—–An example is that the Federal bureaucracies will gain control over all the watersheds in the United States. That includes dry land inside or adjacent to watersheds. That means everything. Because all land is in a watershed.
—–HR 2421 is the biggest threat to private property since CARA and
actually affects far more land and people. Chairman James Oberstar (D-MN) and others are trying to overthrow the Supreme Court decisions.
—–You have until Wednesday, April 30th to get your testimony in to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.Please go to

Please! Go to this site and read what the Water Restoration Act is REALLY about. This is tied directly to NAFTA, CAFTA and the intent to turn water into a globally traded commodity rather than a human right.
CAFTA provisions cannot be fully implemented with regards to the privatization of all water from any source unless the Federal government can claim authority and control over all water systems. The intent of this water confiscation act is to enable the governemnt to sell off our water supplies, and our rights to them to multi national corporations. IF this act is passed, privatization will begin immediately.
OF course it will be preceded by national news reporting saying that our water infrastructure is failing and there are no funds to repair it followed by reports of the cost saving benefits of privatizing this human necessity….the truth is that water will become unaffordable.
Please go to the site listed above and fill out the survey. Also, send them an email and let them know you are supporting their efforts.
The United States and Canada are the only two countries who have refused to sign the declaration of the UN stating that water is a HUMAN RIGHT.
