EPA Emission Regulations Regarding Remanufactured Diesel Engines

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Specific incidents such as the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, the destruction of environmental preserves through the creation of the Federal Highway Interstate System and Rachel Carson’s whistleblowing ecological novel, Silent Spring brought the need for a regulatory agency to oversee environmental issues.
