Comments
The bill permanantly excludes periodic review of existing high-capacity wells, ignores developing science, and provides incentives to accelerate new withdrawal permitting. The bill threatens the sustainability of multiple groundwater uses.

Comments
This bill would worsen damage being done to lakes, streams and wetlands in certain parts of the state. High capacity wells in those areas are already doing serious damage to fish and wildlife habitat important to hunters, anglers and trappers.
