Even though Ed Kidston, (Mayor of Pioneer, OH, and CEO of Artesian of Pioneer) questions whether the Michindoh Aquifer even exists, his company is drilling test wells in it. See the Bryan Times Nov. 13, 2018 article for details. Please note that these “test wells” do not need to be regulated by any Ohio agency. Only when they are slated to become “production wells” do they fall under the oversight of agencies whose mission it is to protect our water supply. So, in the meantime, are the drillers licensed? Do they follow accepted practices in drilling and capping off wells to prevent contamination or run-off?
