Well Regulation Bill Prepped For Final Approval

Antigo, WI, United States /

A bill relaxing high-capacity well regulations in Wisconsin is scheduled for final legislative approval next week. The state Assembly announced Tuesday that it plans to vote on the bill May 2. It would then go to Gov. Scott Walker for his consideration. The Senate passed the bill earlier this month. The measure has pitted conservationists who worry that the changes will drain aquifers, streams and lakes against farmers who say they need more water for irrigation.
