Core Argument

PROTECT OUR WATER!

The groundwater located in parts of Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio is called the Michindoh Aquifer.

A corporation is planning to drill into our only water source and pipe that water to communities who already have access to Lake Erie’s water. Artesian of Pioneer is the company which will profit by its sale of our only water supply.

They are selling this idea to communities in Henry, Fulton, Wood and Lucas counties which want cheaper water. The Ohio Supreme Court established “reasonable use” as the law governing water usage. Most citizens in our community do not consider hijacking and selling our water to other communities for profit a reasonable use.

Williams County Commissioners’ Resolution stated:  “Just because you have the right to do something, doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.”

The “reasonable use” law allows the harm to happen before the matter can be adjudicated. 

“THOU SHALT NOT HARM OUR WATER!”
