Following the Deep Water Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the EPA opened several sub parts of the Clean Water Act to address the out dated and unscientific use of hazardous chemicals to deal with the spill. Dr. Ott encourages participants to file comments on the new rule making
and walks them through 10 key points to be addressed to protect communities and fresh water now that so much oil is being moved by train and pipe line. Community input into
the plan is key to assuring that the affected communities will not be victimized twice by removing decision making from the polluter to the EPA; remediation agents must be non-toxic or not used when drinking water is at risk.
