How Can Congress Revise the Clean Water Act of 1972 to Help Lake Erie?

Revision is unnecessary. Application an enforcement is what is a problem when it comes to agricultual land and operations. Slowly but surely EPA has been tightening up the applicability of the CWA, or broadening its application, whichever floats your boat. Point sources were the easiest to regulate in the beginning, and still are, but now further reductions will require farmers and animal operations to become regulated more strictly. Best management practices will be a large part of the enforcement effort in coming years

1. Trumpu2019s EPA is set to roll back Obamau2019s clean water act that regulates releases of pollutants into the waters of the US. Trumpu2019s changes to the rule could result in more pollution and put people at risk. Do you agree with this change?

NO. This is just trump being jealous of what Obama did, and trying to destroy it

2. Why does carbon dioxide dissolved in water act as a buffer?

Think of a buffer as a chemical sponge for acid or base. pH is determined by how much FREE acid vs. FREE base you have floating around. A buffer will suck up free acid or base, thus preventing them from influencing the pH-in this way the acid or base are neutralized. CO2 in body fluids is in equilibrium with the bicarbonate buffer system, which is the most important general buffer system in the body: CO2 H2O H2CO3 HCO3- H Note the arrows go to the left as well as the right. This means that the direction of the reaction totally depends on how much of any one component is around--when there's more stuff on the right, the reaction tends to go to the left, and vice versa. When carbon dioxide increases, it is converted to carbonic acid (H2CO3) which dissociates to produce bicarbonate anion (HCO3-) and hydrogen ion (H, i.e. free acid). However, normally there's a lot more bicarbonate around than there is carbon dioxide, so any free acid is going to be sucked up, like a sponge sucking up water-keep in mind that with a sponge, the water does not go away, it's still there, but it's not sloshing around-it's "confined." Similarly, the hydrogen ion is sucked up by bicarbonate anion, so that it is not floating around free-and since pH is determined by the FREE hydrogen ion, and not that which is bound up in carbonic acid, the pH wo not change. And here is now where things get really cool: because the whole system is in equilibrium, the carbonic acid then dissociates back into carbon dioxide and water, and the CO2 is then gotten rid of by breathing it out via the lungs.

3. Which president signed the Clean Air and Clean Water Act?

In early 1970, as a result of hrightened public concerns about the deteriorating city air, natural areas littered with debris and urban water supply contaminated with dangerous impurities, President Richard Nixon presented the House and Senate groundbreaking 32 print message on the environment. Around the same time, Pres. Nixon also created a council in point to consider how to organize the Federal government program designed to reduce pollution so this program could efficiently address the goals laid out in hid message on the environment.Upon council recommendation, the president sent to Congress plan to consolidate many environmental responsibilities of the federal government under one agency, a new Environmental Protection Agency.

4. Drugs in tap water = act of bio-terrorism?

nah, it's from people ingesting the drugs and not absorbing them completely and then peeing them out. also from people flusing old pillz and stuff

5. Other than the Clean Water Act, what has congress done for the environment?

What do you want congress to do...Ban breathing (we exhale CO2)? Breathing accounts for about 90% of daily CO2 emissions. CO2 is required for life on this planet. Trees love the stuff. Carbon Dioxide is what we all breathe out. Carbon Monoxide is the bad stuff. And its no surprise that politicians want to tax the stuff we all breathe out - that's government for you.

6. Give two ways of expressing the formula for water. Does water act as an acid or a base? Explain.?

depends on the ph of the water. now go read your book
