Multi-State Water War Continues

(Fayette, OH)  The fight over an aquifer as a suburban source of water continues. 

Fayette officials told the William County Alliance, the group that opposes plans to sell water from the Michindoh Aquifer, they have no interest in passing a resolution opposing the controversial project.

The project would tap Pioneer Mayor Ed Kidston's company, Artesian of Pioneer, to drill wells into the aquifer and pump groundwater as far as 60 or more miles away.
