Water Resources Conference
All over the world, including New York State, poorly implemented and enforced water policies are failing both nature and society. In the U.S., when Congress passed the Federal Clean Water Act in 1977, primary objectives included ending the discharge of pollutants by 1985 and creating universally fishable and swimmable waters by 1983. Unfortunately, the effort to achieve those goals and a host of others — eliminating the indirect discharge of pollutants, creating watershed management programs, and funding major research and development of new technologies to eliminate pollution — has failed.
