Aquifer Meeting Set for Early March
Wednesday, February 20, 2019

A Pioneer, Ohio company’s proposal to sell water from a local aquifer will undergo public scrutiny March 12 at an Environmental Protection Agency hearing in Fayette.

Artesian of Pioneer plans to dig a test well about a mile northwest of the village on County Road S after it met EPA criteria for the project. Owned by Pioneer Mayor Edward Kidston, the company was issued draft well site approval on February 6.

The OEPA hearing is set for March 12 at 6 p.m. at Fayette Local Schools on Eeast Gamble Road.
