DEPRIVED OF OUR WATER RIGHTS AND OUR RIGHT TO WATER

An introduction to a series by Pearl Rains Hewett
behindmyback.org” – CLOUDED WATERS

DEPRIVED OF OUR WATER
BY THE APPOINTED FEDERAL – STATE AGENCIES – TRIBAL TREATY -TAPPED
This series of on the taking and depravation of our water rights will report, document and expose the many ways we the people are being deprived not only of our water right, but to our right to water.
THE Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
The source point of our deprivation comes from THE TOP via a federally Appointed Agency. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is federally funded by our centralized US Government in DC.

UNITED STATES SENATE REPORT CLOUDED WATERS
(previously posted behindmyback.org.)

A Senate Report Exposing the High Cost of EPA’s Water Regulations and Their Impacts on State and Local Budgets
United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works
Executive Summary
This report examines the impacts on state and local governments of several water regulations that EPA is, or will shortly be, implementing: new water quality criteria in Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and numeric nutrient criteria (NNC) for geographic locations, new stormwater rules, and the new Pesticide General Permit (PGP). These rules carry with them significant unfunded mandates that will cost state and local governments tens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars.
Importantly, these new rules are not the outcome of legislation or rigorous scientific findings, but a direct result of a number of lawsuits with environmentalists. The agreements to regulate often did not include any meaningful opportunity for input from state and local entities.

FEDERAL APPOINTED EPA

This series will include the trickle down effect of the Appointed EPA Clean Water Act etc. and shall address both being deprived of our water, our right to water and the financial impact on we the people.

WA STATE DEPT OF ECOLOGY (DOE)
It will examine and document the many parts that appointed State agencies, the WA State DOE specifically plays in the deprivation of our water private and riparian rights in Counties in WA State. It will question both the DUE PROCESS of LAW and competency of the WA State DOE in creating and imposing and the WA Rules in WA State. The topics of DOE coerced monopoly and Commodity trading will also be discussed

Previously been posted on “behindmyback.org

PUBLIC COMMENT
It will address the documents the nearly 1000 public comments sent to the WA State DOE on the Dungeness Water Rule from the people of Clallam County and the mote effective that those comments had on the decision of the DOE Appointed State Agency. Why did we bother with nearly 1000 comments? When all we got back was 525 pages of response from DOE and no change in The Dungeness Water Rule.

TRIBAL TREATY RESERVED WATER RIGHTS – INSTREAM FLOW
Demands by the tribes of up to 143% of instream flows, lawsuits, intended use, Casinos, strip malls, etc. Under the threat of a federal lawsuit by the tribes,
WA State WSDOT committed to $1.5 BILLION dollar to replace culverts for fish passage in WA State

“TAPPED” THE SELLING OF OUR WATER
From the “TAPPED” water on the East coast by Nestles a Swiss Company, to Anacortes WA, the sale of Skagit River Basin water, 5 million gallons of water a day sold to a private bottle water company is the BIGGEST TAPPED WATER in the United States of America. While, 6000 farmers and private property owners are left with ZERO water rights in the Skagit River Basin under the WA State DOE Water Rules.

FROM “CLOUDED WATERS” SENATE REPORT
That will cost state and local governments tens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars.

LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT on we the people
