  • For more than 40 years, American families and businesses across the country have counted on the Clean Water Act to protect the streams and wetlands we rely on for our way of life – from recreation to public health to a growing economy. In recent years, however, court decisions have led to uncertainty and a need for clarification. One in three Americans now gets drinking water from streams lacking clear protection, and businesses and industries that depend on clean water face uncertainty and delay, which costs our economy every day. Too many of our waters have been left vulnerable to pollution. That’s why I called on the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clear up the confusion and uphold our basic duty to protect these vital resources.

    Today, after extensive input from the American public, they’re doing just that – finalizing the Clean Water Rule to restore protection for the streams and wetlands that form the foundation of our nation’s water resources, without getting in the way of farming, ranching, or forestry. This rule will provide the clarity and certainty businesses and industry need about which waters are protected by the Clean Water Act, and it will ensure polluters who knowingly threaten our waters can be held accountable. My Administration has made historic commitments to clean water, from restoring iconic watersheds like the Chesapeake Bay and the Great Lakes to preserving more than a thousand miles of rivers and other waters for future generations. With today’s rule, we take another step towards protecting the waters that belong to all of us.

  • The National Wildlife Federation has a link to support The Clean Water Rule. It generates a letter to your Congressman / woman to show your support. I assume that if you are invested and interested in Ecosphere and its patented solution for clean water that you support the updates clarifying the Clean Water Act. Google Search: The Clean Water Rule: Protecting America's Waters National Wildlife Federation
    That should get you to the article that has a link to show your support.

    Ozonix Sentinel

    My guess would be that these are probably vessels that the Army Corps of Engineers already uses and they conceptually retrofitted the Ozonix mobile platform to fit these vessels. Just my opinion. Interesting they named it Ozonix Sentinel. Sentinel is a guardian term and has an Army Corps of Engineers ring to it (in my opinion). I hope there is a pilot program coming. Interesting set of rivers that are given as examples of needing cleanup along the east coast in their map on the website. Seems like these must be targets of importance to the Army Corps of Engineers.

  • The U.S. EPA’s plan to prevent municipal water treatment plants from accepting fracking waste is being hailed by supporters as a necessary safeguard against the contamination of public water supplies, and attacked by the petroleum industry as a short-sighted measure that ignores its long-term needs and violates the Clean Water Act.

    As the public-comment period on the agency’s proposed Effluent Limitations Rule comes to an end on July 17, environmentalists and a Pennsylvania Congressman said any treatment of fracking waste by sewage plants would risk toxic materials getting into waterways if it was allowed to take place.

  • AP Article out today:
    Local officials in towns downstream from where millions of gallons of mine waste spilled into a southwest Colorado river are demanding answers about possible long-term threats to the water supply.

    Colorado and New Mexico declared stretches of the Animas and San Juan rivers to be disaster areas as the orange-colored waste stream made its way downstream toward Lake Powell in Utah after the spill Wednesday at the abandoned Gold King mine near Silverton, Colorado.

    The 3 million gallons of mine waste included high concentrations of arsenic, lead and other heavy metals. Workers with the EPA accidentally unleashed the spill as they inspected the abandoned mine site.

    EPA officials said Monday that there was no leading edge of contamination visible in downstream sections of the San Juan River or Lake Powell. But that has done little to ease concerns or quell the anger caused by the spill.

    The Navajo Nation, which covers parts of New Mexico, Utah and Arizona, declared an emergency as it shut down water intake systems and stopped diverting water from the San Juan River. (cont.)

    Sounds to me like they are finalizing negotiations with him to extend the due dates on all of the short term debt with Brisben. Guess we will see in the coming days the details of that as explained in the quarterly report.

    I look to the quarterly report to provide further guidance on current happenings. I speculate that the Ecos Growcube relationship with Waveseer could be a "results" driver near term as they build out their desert farm in Nevada. Probably has some sort of pilot program test period I would imagine, but if they can grow plants in the desert, that would prove the concept up for agriculture/food cultivation anywhere in my opinion. Waveseer is also raising funds in Illinois and Oregon based on a Google Search of the company. The Hydrozonix group seems to be in alliance with Green Group Holdings for water treatment at the Bill, Wyoming, centralized oil and gas waste management facility, Grasslands Environmental. That is just developing this year and is a model for how water and waste management can be handled for the oil and gas industry. I speculate that they hope to replicate the initiative in other locations, but just my opinion. I speculate that Fidelity National Financial Ventures will eventually focus its efforts on what they want to do with the Fidelity National Environmental Solutions investment they have in partnership with Ecosphere Technologies. On their last quarterly call their focus continues to be on monetizing existing investments through spin offs or sales. They also said they are now strategically looking for acquisitions and feel there are some that might compliment some of their existing investments. I would like to think that might include considering an acquisition of an environmental engineering / water management firm which would have experience and channels to utilize the Ozonix technology further. Those types of companies have been beat up since the price of oil and gas has fallen. Take a look at Nuverra Environmental. They already have been managing water for Halliburton. Maybe a way to get access to a major oil and gas services company. Or maybe a spin off or sale? Purely hopeful speculation on my part.

    Absolutely, hopefully the Ozonix Sentinel concept is adopted by environmental engineering firms with EPA, Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Land Management, State Governments, and Local Government contracts. Seems to be a big issue in the news and a pilot program with the Army Corps of Engineers seems like the best way to prove the concept and work on the issue from the front lines of the battle. I hope that they are given a chance in their backyard with Lake Okeechobee and the C-44 canal, Indian River Lagoon, etc. to prove up that concept. I would like to think that Phillips and Jordan could help with that since they have listed a contract for work on the C-44 canal on their website and they know the effectiveness of the Ozonix technology. All speculation of opportunities on my part, but I am looking at this with a glass half full.

    Treasure found off Fl Coast- Brisben?

    Yep. If you Google Search it and read about the find, one of their exploration contractors found more Spanish gold coins/artifacts in really shallow water in July. They also appeared on network tv news programs and there are videos to watch. They thought the value was around $1M at the time of the announcement. I believe they split any treasure finds with their sub-contracted exploration teams.
