Texas EPA Czar Gets Down and Dirty on Sewage Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Apr 16, 2012, 06:23 PM
Texas EPA Czar Al Armendariz, a SMU professor in Dallas, Tx., is waging a nasty battle against sewage companies. He contends that sewage is an environmental health hazard and must be regulated much more rigorously, according to his testimony at a U.S. Senate hearing.

According to the Las Cruces Sun News, “Sunland Park woes of a different kind were highlighted Wednesday during testimony before U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, who visited Las Cruces for a field hearing on U.S.-Mexico border environmental concerns.”

Federal officials disclosed that a broken-down wastewater treatment plant – one of two in Sunland Park – and aging infrastructure have been contributing to improper wastewater treatment.

As reported by the Las Cruces Sun News, “now, sewage from the dysfunctional plant is being shuffled to another plant near the Sunland Park City Hall. But that facility can’t accommodate the peak flows, said EPA administrator Al Armendariz of Region 6, which covers fives states including New Mexico.”

He said, “for us, fixing the situation in Sunland Park is a high priority.”

Here "the genius" goes again! Always "knowing it all"! Believing in regulation for all.

The EPA is the "Gestapo of 2012"! Local people can take care of local problems! They do not need a Leftist SMU professor to solve everything from the toothbrush to the oilfield! Fire this crowd in November!
