A comment worth sharing was posted under the story about the proposed Oakwood Hills Peaker Plant by Harry D. Harman, P.E.:
The water from 1,300 feet is being “mined” already.
What remains must be dedicated for public drinking water.
Without it, population growth in the area will come to a halt.
If they want water, try the Mt. Simon aquifer at 2,000 ft which is not typically used for potable water.
