The final paper asks you to identify a complex environmental issue that implicates more than one environmental statute. For example, climate change, hazardous waste, and species protection are all issues in which policymakers, regulators, and advocates have applied multiple environmental statutes (e.g., CAA, CWA, CERCLA, ESA) to achieve their desired outcome. The goal of this paper is for you to see how many environmental issues have multiple dimensions that implicate a range of federal environmental statutes and policy processes. Be sure to provide specific cases and evidence.
Your paper should include:
A description of an issue (e.g., climate change, hazardous waste remediation, species protection) that implicates at least two federal statutes. You should describe a specific case or conflict associated with the problem, the statutes implicated, and how the statutes have been applied by policymakers, regulators, and/or advocates.
An analysis of how policymakers, regulators, and/or advocates connect these statutes to the issue. Your analysis should evaluate whether this application was appropriate and why or why not.
Analysis that addresses the following questions: Are the statutes sufficient to address the underlying problem? Why or why not? Do these statutes provide federal, state, and local jurisdictions sufficient tools to prevent or respond to the issue? Why or why not?
Recommendations for whether additional legal authority is needed to address the issue, or whether existing authority can be used more effectively.

Instructions Week 6 Assignment: Write a letter to a local, state, or federal pol

Week 6 Assignment: Write a letter to a local, state, or federal politician on a current environmental health policy to advocate for a specific population.
The American Public Health Association (APHA) is a great source for advocacy issues in public health. You can use their website to find an issue to discuss: Environmental Health. You may also use other sources or discuss any topics we mentioned in class but the letter must discuss a specific law or proposal either within your state or at the federal level. The idea is that you will send this letter to the politician, but this is not required as part of the assignment. The assignment will assess your knowledge on the topic and your ability to communicate your opinion based on factual information on an environmental health policy. You will also be graded on identifying the correct person to contact (ex. is it a federal law or state law?)
Part One:
Write the letter to a U.S. or state congress or senator. Use the attached document as a template for your letter. Your letter must be detailed and specific and must include fact-based information. The APHA has letters that they write to politicians. Here is an example: Letters to Congress and federal Agencies. (Please note that this is from an organization and you are writing from an individual perspective.) Include a specific actionable request of the politician.
Part two:
Must include a reference section, why you chose this person to contact, and why the topic of the letter is an environmental health issue. This may be in the same document as the letter but on a separate page.
Format: Paper must be a minimum of one (1) page long not including references. Follow APA format for writing a paper (title page and abstract are not necessary). See these websites for help with APA format: Purdue University and APA Style. Save document as “your last name_letter”
Assignment Instructions:
Assignments are due in the Assignment portion of the classroom by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. EST each week. Make sure you read and understand the directions and requirements for each Assignment. Please ensure you cite your references in APA format with a minimum of 3 references (You may use a resource given as a reference and you should have a minimum of 2 academic outside references). Assignment will be graded based on the following areas: Foundation and synthesis of knowledge, application of knowledge critical thinking, writing skills, and organization of ideas and format. Refer to Library Online Resource Center for any research assistance. Refer to the Student Handbook for policies relevant to academic honesty and other procedures and policies related to this course.

post a minimum of 750 words synthesizing this paper, a general critique (what are the paper’s strengths/weaknesses), and finally how they are relevant to the course theme of assessing aquatic resources. You will be graded based on these three areas.
Assessment of aquatic resources entails a scientific study of the physical, chemical and biological attributes of water bodies (lakes, wetlands, and streams). The purpose is typically to determine the level of impairment based on systematically collected data.
