GOD'S & MAN'S LAWS
Jesus, Savior, Pilot me
Over Life's Tempestuous Sea.
Unknown Waves Before me Roll,
Hiding Rock and Dangerous Shoal.
Chart and Compass Come from Thee.
Jesus, Savior, Pilot me.
Then God said, I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beast of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground- everything that has the breath of life in it- I give every green plant for food. And it was so. Genesis 1:29-31
Then God said, "Let the waters teem with fish and other life, and let the skies be filled with birds of every kind. Genesis 1:20
These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat. Leviticus 11:9
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: Leviticus 11:10
I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers. Psalms 89:25
- Men Know How to mine silver and refine gold, to dig iron from the earth and melt copper from stone. Men know how to put light into darkness so that a mine shaft can be sunk into the earth, and the earth searched and its deep secrets explored. Into the black rock, shadowed by death, men descend on ropes, swinging back and forth.
"Men know how to obtain food from the surface of the earth, while underneath there is fire.
"They know how to find sapphires and gold dust- treasures that no bird of prey can see, no eagle's eye observe- for they are deep within the mines. No wild animal has ever walked upon those treasures; no lion has set his paw there. Men know how to tear apart flinty rocks and how to overturn the roots of mountains. They drill tunnels in the rocks and lay precious stones. The dam up streams of water and pan the gold.
"But though men can do all these things, they don't know where to find wisdom and understanding. They not only don't know how to get it, but, in fact, it is not to be found among the living.
"It's not here,' the oceans say; and the seas reply' 'Nor is it here.'
"It cannot be bought for gold or silver, nor for all the gold in Ophir or precious onyx stones or sapphires. Wisdom is far more valuable than gold or glass. It cannot be bought for jewels mounted in fine gold.
"Coral or crystal is worthless in trying to get it; its price is far above rubies. Topaz from Ethiopia cannot purchase it, nor even the purest gold.
"Then where can we get it? Where can it be found? For it is hid from the eyes of all mankind; even the sharp-eyed birds in the sky cannot discover it.
"But Destruction and Death speak of knowing something about it! And God surely knows where it is to be found, for he looks throughout the whole earth, under all the heavens. He makes the winds blow and sets the boundries of the oceans. He makes the laws of the rain and a path for the lightning. He knows where the wisdom is and declares it to all who will listen. He established it and examined it thoroughly. And this is what he says to all mankind: 'Look, to fear the Lord is true wisdom; to forske evil is real understanding.'" Job 28:1-28

Clean Water Act
33 U.S.C. s/s 1251 et seq. (1977)
The Clean Water Act is a 1977 amendment to the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972, which set the basic structure for regulating discharges of pollutants to waters of the United States.
The law gave EPA the authority to set effluent standards on an industry basis (technology-based) and continued the requirements to set water quality standards for all contaminants in surface waters. The CWA makes it unlawful for any person to discharge any pollutant from a point source into navigable waters unless a permit (NPDES) is obtained under the Act.
The 1977 amendments focused on toxic pollutants. In 1987, the CWA was reauthorized and again focused on toxic substances, authorized citizen suit provisions, and funded sewage treatment plants (POTW's) under the Construction Grants Program.
The CWA provisions for the delegation by EPA of many permitting, administrative, and enforcement aspects of the law to state governments. In states with the authority to implement CWA programs, EPA still retains oversight responsibilities.
