mendments, fines were enforced to make sure dumpers were being responsible for putting pollutants into the waters. Each amendment gave the government more authority in The Federal Water Pollution Act. With the authority, the government requires each state to follow EPA water quality standards for all navigable waters, according to the Environment Protection Agency. This policy is legal and under federal law, the EPA has developed water recommendations for pollutants in water, as well as implementing pollution control programs to decrease the likelihood of polluting the waters. Environmental ethics, specifically the considerations of rights, justice, utility, and care, provide the underpinnings for many of our current environmental laws. Applying these approaches to environmental problems and studying the regulatory framework in place to address them, helps people implementing this policy have a professional manner and its ethical. Long term, as stated in the policy, made a lot of grants available to research groups to help with the future and to be able to come together in helping the future. SEC. 109. (a) The Administrator is authorized to make grants to or contracts with institutions of higher education, or combinations of such institutions, to assist them in planning, developing, strengthening, improving, or carrying out programs or projects for the preparation of undergraduate students to enter an occupation which involves the design, operation, and maintenance of treatment works, and other facilities whose purpose is water quality control. Freyfogle (1994) argues that we must begin to see our relationship with the environment as a moral one, such that we view abuse of the environment as an offense to society rather than a matter of individual economic cost-benefit analysis (p. 842). This policy simply regulations on pollution of waters, and laws that “impose the basic tenets of rights, justice, utility, and care” The Clean Water Act (CWA) establishes the basic structure for regulating discharges of pollutants into the waters of the United States and regulating quality standards for surface waters. At the time, the policy was written there had been a lot of problems with companies discharging pollutant in to the waters. CWA made that unlawful and put a big stop to waters being polluted Since clean water act was implemented it has regulated discharge of pollution into our waters. In the past 40+ years it has reduced pollution in water, “Overall, more than 60 percent of the nation’s waters meet the Clean Water Act fishable and swimmable goal.” While back in 1972 when this act was implemented only a third were considered to be fit for these activities. The EPA has played a big role in achieving clean water. Their implementing of this policy makes it possible for the clean water act to work and people obeying the laws it sets. I believe this policy is very necessary due to the fact that water is needed in all living things and polluting it is bad for environment and living >GET ANSWER
