Discuss best practices to address the HRM issue including defining key terms and presenting current theories and research that validates the effectiveness of recommended practices.
we are going to explore the history of the Water Control Pollution Act and how it has affected our nation’s waters. We will define its strengths and weakness and theorize ideas on how to improve these concerns. We we also determine whether or not the policy does more harm than good and if the policy is justifiable while protecting the rights of citizens. These findings will be conclusive with expert research and scholarly sources. By the conclusion of our paper, the reader should be able to critically analyze this policy, understand the issue, and reasoning on why the policy was created. The problem that this policy is trying to solve is the pollution of water, while aiming to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters. One of the solutions being proposed is to develop comprehensive programs for the prevention, reduction, and/or elimination of pollution in navigable waters and ground waters, as well as improving the sanitary condition of surface and underground waters. In order to achieve this, federal agencies had to cooperate with state and local agencies to develop comprehensive solutions, for example; in cooperation with State water pollution control agencies, public investigations concerning the pollution of navigable waters and reports on those results were done. Many improved methods and procedures to identify and measure the effects of pollutants, including those pollutants created by new technological developments, and for evaluating the effects of water quality of augmented stream-flows to control pollution were established. Also, trained personnel were needed to be able to operate and maintain existing and future ‘treatment’ works, and for this the Administrator financed pilot programs for the manpower development, training, and even retraining of the personnel. Before the first Earth Day in 1970, increasing news of polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways, the loss of wilderness and the extinction of wildlife were brought to light. At that time, president Nixon wasn’t interested or concerned about environment issues but decided to seize an opportunity to attract new supporters and sent dozens of environment proposals to Congress, including the Clean Water Act of 1972 (Madel, R., 2012). After the act passed through Congress, due to the cost associated with it, Nixon vetoed it. On October 18, 1972 the Senate followed by the House overrode Nixon’s vetoed and the bill was passed (David A Keiser, Joseph S Shapiro., 2019). The Clean Water Act is administered by the Administer of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in coordination with state governments. According to Sec. 104 (C) the Administrator conducted research on, and surveyed the results of other scientific studies on the harmful effects on health and even welfare of people due to pollutants. These studies, in order to avoid any duplicate results, had to be conducted in cooperation with and through the facilities of the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. The strengths of this policy were that it was supported >GET ANSWER
