- Andrew Snarski, District 5
- Ersel Schuster, District 6
Protecting the aquifers we rely on for our water in this County has been a core issue for the Alliance for Land, Agriculture and Water (ALAW) from its beginning.
Without access to good water, property is devalued, the ability to live and work in an area is compromised and future development stops.
Studies have shown aquifer stress and depletion in McHenry County for years, but meaningful solutions have not been implemented
We believe that these candidates will work to protect our aquifers and essential groundwater recharge areas, ensuring that our County continues to be a viable, desirable place to live, work and raise afamily.
