Ronald Reagan once quipped, ‘The nine most terrifying words in the English Language are “I’m here from the government and I’m here to help.” Truer words couldn’t have been spoken. Citizens should shudder at the prospect of a federal government bureaucrat interjecting themselves into local issues. Soon, that issue will be taken from them, and they will no longer have a say.
The EPA, since its inception, has been on a quest to dictate water usage. This regulatory agency openly brags about their untouchable status conferred upon them by the Supreme Court, and they intend to touch every aspect of our lives.
The Free Beacon reported the EPA is worming their way into Boulder, Colorado’s water department under the guise of helping them monitor and collect data on its citizens.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is looking to monitor how much water families use in Boulder, Colorado.
The agency submitted a solicitation Thursday, announcing its plans to hire a contractor for the purpose of “Water Monitoring Equipment and Collection of Data” of apartments in the city.
“Region 8 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency intends to issue a Request for Quotes (RFQ) for installation of water monitoring equipment,” the solicitation said. “Once installed the contractor will integrate the equipment with existing software system that will monitor water usage in multi-family housing units. The work will be performed in Boulder, Colorado.”
The EPA expects to release a final solicitation for the project on June 25. Once a contractor is selected, the monitoring would begin six months after the award.
Boulder is a progressive town. I’m sure they don’t mind being told what to do by EPA thugs.
