    They are talking abou major disruptions of water table levels within dozens of counties west and north of Pioneer, OH.  Please. please read this article.  This is crowd source support at stake here. HELP>>>>I live in the affected are a near Angola, IN in the country where our well went from 60′ to 180′ in a matter of years (read $7K for a new well that is so severely iron that is disrupting) .  This will affect dozens of counties because it does not stop at one well but up to a hundred wells with 150,000,000 gallons capacity per week.  Area parks, rivers and farm wells will go dry.  The water comes from the surface over years of rain water at present levels.  Follow the $$$.

    An excerpt of the article follows in case it is taken down:

    PIONEER, Ohio — A boisterous crowd of 200 people showed extreme displeasure with Pioneer Mayor Ed Kidston’s plan to sell Michindoh Aquifer water to Toledo-area suburbs on Monday night, first with a protest outside the Pioneer Community Center and then inside it during the village’s monthly meeting.

    The mayor, once most people had left, went so far as to describe the large group of attendees as an angry “mob,” saying he has no plans to stop his project.

    CTY-BRYANWATER14 Fayette resident Dan Nicely speaks out against sharing water with Toledo suburbs during the Pioneer Village Council meeting.

    His plan is to have his company, Artesian of Pioneer, sell Perrysburg, Maumee, Sylvania, and other communities between Lucas and Williams counties water it either draws from wells or pays farmers to do so. The aquifer in question serves several Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana counties. It lies almost exclusively beneath Williams County.
