Saratoga resident Gail Kretschmer traveled to Madison to testify in front of the Assembly Environment and Forestry Committee regarding the newly proposed Assembly Bill 679.

This bill essentially is a re-write of Senate Bill 302 that did not make it through committee earlier this year due to public concerns. Assembly Bill 679 would override the Supreme Court decision in the Lake Beulah case that stated the DNR does have to consider all waters of the state when permitting a high capacity well, meaning that the DNR must consider cumulative effects of all water usage.
