Cooperative Network testifies in favor of high capacity well permitting

Cooperative Network recently testified  in support of legislation (SB 76/AB 105) that would allow the repair or replacement of an approved high capacity well or the transfer of the approval when the owner transfers the land on which the well is located, without additional approval from the Department of Natural Resources. The companion bills were heard by the Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform and the Assembly Committee on Agriculture in the Capitol during a marathon 10-hour joint committee hearing on March 15. Cooperative Network members approved language for a resolution on groundwater during the annual meeting last fall that advocates for permitting certainty for high capacity wells. This issue is important to our farm credit, credit union, dairy and farm supply cooperative members.
