Does the EPA approve of the farming techniques of the Amish?



  1. 0 Votes

    The EPA is struggling with the Amish farming techniques leading to hazardous runoff. Their cows are producing large amounts of manure which then enters the water systems. The primary issue here is in regard to the Chesapeake Bay which President Obama has made a governmental concern. He wants the EPA to clean up the bay that the Amish community is polluting this year. Lancaster County is the offending area as it produces over 61 million pounds of manure each year, which is 20 million pounds more manure than the next highest producer. It is also 6 times the amount of manure produced in the majority of counties.
