Engineer Suggests Digging Deeper for Peaker Plant Wells to Avoid Drinking Water Competition

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.
