“The American Farm Bureau Federation has claimed on its website and elsewhere that EPA would take over all farming and land use, control ‘virtually all water,’ and even regulate puddles and wet spots.” (http://www.nrdc.org/media/2014/140715.asp)

The American ‘puddle’ is of course 20 fluid ponds, while the British ‘puddle’ is defined as three to five cubic centidrips, must contain at least 85% water and must remain in place for at least six months of the year. Seasonal puddles are not regulated.
