By JASON RUBINETTO-DUBINENTE/APMEX-AP The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to crack down on the environmental groups that have criticized the agency’s regulations on mercury pollution and other pollutants.
On Wednesday, the agency announced that it will suspend enforcement of a rule aimed at preventing mercury pollution from polluting groundwater.
The rule is aimed at making it more difficult for polluters to pollute groundwater.
EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy has already been in contact with the groups that filed the complaint against the rule.
EPA is also imposing a fine of up to $1,000 on the companies who are found to be responsible for the pollution, but this is aimed only at the companies that are responsible.
The new rules will make it easier for states and cities to pass laws requiring testing for mercury, but they will also be enforced more heavily.
This could help to limit the number of contaminated drinking water wells, but will also mean more costs to people and businesses.
This isn’t the first time the EPA has attempted to regulate the groups involved in these environmental protests.
In May, the EPA banned a group of protesters from holding a demonstration against mercury in Washington, D.C., citing a concern about potential impacts to public health.
The group said it would try to resume the demonstration in Washington.
The EPA is a federal agency that protects Americans from dangerous chemicals, but some of its actions could be viewed as overly restrictive, even though they are meant to help protect the public.
In the EPA’s proposed rule, McCarthy said that “EPA will not seek to impose on any environmental group a fine that is too high, or an enforcement requirement that is burdensome, because these types of measures have been shown to have limited effectiveness at deterring mercury pollution.”
McCarthy’s office said the agency was considering whether to impose a fine on polluters that exceeded the $1 million threshold.
The EPA also is considering whether or not to suspend enforcement.
McCarthys statement comes after the EPA issued a rule last year that sought to curb mercury pollution by banning the use of a chemical called polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) in some products.
The rule was designed to help companies to comply with a regulation from the Environmental Protection Administration.
But some environmental groups argued that the rule should be interpreted to apply to all companies and not just those that manufacture products.
