A hearing room spilled over with people at the State Capitol Wednesday with people clambering to talk about high capacity wells. The bill allows owners of existing high capacity wells to repair them, or in an emergency replace them, - with zero DNR review.
And if you sell your property, the high capacity well comes with it - no permitting strings attached.
Statewide, more than 13,000 high capacity wells exist. Each one can extract more than 100,000 gallons of water per day.
