Who's Responsible for the Falls Lake Mess?

Record #:
Falls Lake is required to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's most basic water classification determined by the Clean Water Act--that it be swimmable and fishable. But the lake doesn't meet that standard. Since 2010, Falls Lake, including the lower portion where Raleigh gets its drinking water, has failed state and federal water quality standards. The Falls Lake rules are supposed to fix that.
