Congressional Research Service Report Released: Clean Water Act and Pollutant Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs)

The Congressional Research Service (CRS), the public policy research arm of Congress, just issued the report Clean Water Act and Pollutant Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) (Sept. 21, 2012). The 22 page report authored by Claudia Copeland discusses the basic program in Section 303(d) of the Act as well as recent developments and challenges.  Included in this report are sections discussing nonpoint source, mercury, stormwater, ocean acidification, climate change and multi-jurisdicational TMDLs.  All-in-all an excellent overview for the novice Clean Water Act practitioner.

Can science predict violent behavior and help prevent tragedies like Newtown, Connecticut? Science, as it usually does, has some surprising and kind of scary things to tell us. Apparently, no matter what kind of life you lead, scientists can still figure out who you'll be at 30 based on who you were as a toddler.
