Odors from 1/4 -4 miles away are already increasing health problems related to asthma, sinus, and/or allergies. The wind direction determines whether this is due to cattle, hogs, turkeys, or chickens. The distance of a feedlot from wells of all depths should be at a maximum distance for all settings. Is there a guarantee that waste disposal will not pollute these wells now or in the future'? Will we all be forced to pipe in water from other counties like reports indicate that some families are doing'? The decision must consider the rights of future generations living in this county to have clean air and water for a healthy life. Our job is to be good stewards of our natural resources such as air and water. On August 17, 2003, Governor Pawlenty announced an initiative for the quality of water for Minnesota. How will our county's decision affect others in the state'? We need to remember that drainage from throughout the county often goes to Big Stone Lake,on to the Minnesota River and then to the Mississippi River. A lot of territory and individuals could be affected. A.M.Larson, Ortonville Immunization Clinics for Sept.
