Vox Pop - June 7

Same concerns?

According to the Dispatch, there is concern about using a septic system at the proposed Dondelinger site at Highways 77 and 371 because of the high water table and flow toward local Baxter lakes. Shouldn’t the same factors be a concern when it comes to filling in nearly an acre of wetland? Wetlands are the natural filters for ground water and help prevent flooding.
