High-capacity wells

Postby Shorty » Fri Mar 03, 2017 10:59 am

Now Republicans want to pollute High-capacity wells. What will they think of next?

New bill has one less safeguard for Wisconsin lakes near high-powered wells

"By dropping the provision to expand legal rights of people whose drinking water, lakes or streams are harmed by industrial-grade wells, sponsors of the bill introduced Wednesday have wiped away a sticking point that prevented passage of the proposal in the Republican-dominated Legislature last year...The bills would forbid environmental impact reviews of high-capacity wells built to replace existing ones and reviews of wells on property being sold, meaning that once a well is permitted, it probably can never be reevaluated no matter how much conditions change. High-capacity well permits, unlike most other environmental permits, never expire."
