Area resident comments on high-capacity wells
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 5:41 AM

I am writing this letter to add my voice to the discussion about how the ever increasing number of high-capacity wells in Waushara County is drying up our lakes and streams. To the list of myths being perpetrated by agriculture, I would like to add a couple more.

I will also comment on the recent decision by the Legislature through the joint finance committee to prevent the DNR from considering the impact of multiple wells in the area when evaluating applications for new irrigation wells. This action has dealt a severe blow to the protection of ground and surface waters in the county. Unless something is done to reverse the decision there is no way to prevent more lakes and streams from drying up.
