Looks like the EPA had a major blunder just a few days ago. As a federal cleanup crew tried treating the water in southwest Colorado, they accidentally spilled millions of gallons of waste causing the river to turn orange. Read on to get the full story.

One of our employees from the Stanton/Buena Park area discovered an article post a few years back regarding the Safe Drinking water Act. As it turns out only 91 contaminates are regulated, however there are more that 60,000 chemical used within the U.S. and they still have not been added to the list. Studies have found that even some chemicals that are regulated need to be updated. The EPA started doing their investigation but is it enough? Click on the link below to get the full story.

One of our employees from the Kansas City/Overland Park area emailed me an article this past week and we thought It was worth mentioning considering that USA Hazmat specializes in hazardous waste removal and transportation. As it turns out, the EPA will be offering an extension on their new pollution rule so that each state can conform to their demands. Click on the link below to get the full article.

If you have been following our post, you will recall that we talked about the EPA and how they are trying to impose the clean power plan rule in large industrial coal companies in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We wanted to provide this next article on what we can do as homeowners to do our part as well. Please read on :).

One of our employees from the Los Angeles area found an interesting article over the weekend on the EPA and coal mining companies. Many of these coal mining companies are located in states such as Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, and Nebraska (just to name a few) and are demanding that the federal court stop the EPA from imposing new rules because it would require states to limit carbon emissions from the utility sector.

When it comes to rules and regulations on the transportation and disposal of hazardous waste and materials, California has one of the strictest in the nation, at least on paper. However, the system has been flawed for some time now. We came across this article that explains how state regulators were being negligent or were not acting accordingly based on the information they are being provided. This article provides a story of an elementary school that was exposed to some noxious odors by a near by plant, causing children to vomit. Click on the link below. Follow us if you like our post.

The topic of hazardous waste produced by tattoo parlors still poses a serous risk within the industry due to the weakness of regulations. With no statutory inspections required, many believe that these businesses are potentially being operated with little to no understanding of the importance of correct disposal of sharps.

We wanted to follow up with another article we found that was posted just a few weeks ago on the EPA. According to the article, the divided Supreme Court blocked the EPA’s federal clean air regulations on coal and oil-fired power plants. Follow the link to get the full story.

Earlier today, the EPA had released its final version of a rule aimed to protect America’s stream and wetlands. Congressional republicans along with farmers, and a small handful of Democrats from farm and energy-heavy states are already pushing legislation aimed at crippling the rule in both Houses.
