The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment examined draft legislation that would modify the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to shield agricultural operators from potential citizen lawsuits over contaminated water.
Even though contaminated groundwater resources are regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act, under current law, lawsuits may be brought by citizens under jurisdiction of RCRA as well. The legislation under discussion would have removed liability under RCRA for farmers and agriculture, but preserved the ability for lawsuits filed under SDWA.
Groundwater was featured prominently in the hearing as representatives testified to the agricultural contamination…

Click below to watch how I installed a stainless steel deep well hand pump in my homestead well in the summer of 2016, and see how it works with those first few pumps of clear, cold water. This pump is made by a US company called Bison Pumps and is the nicest I’ve ever seen and used. It works year-round, without freezing up even in the coldest climates.
