Bayfield County Groundwater Results

"A report on groundwater and wells near the proposed site for a large hog farm shows that the area's soil composition makes it more susceptible to runoff pollution.

The farm that Iowa-based Reicks View Farms plans to build in Bayfield County near Lake Superior would be the largest hog farm in the state, holding about 26,000 pigs. The company plans to spread roughly 9 million gallons of manure across around 1,400 acres at the site each year by injecting it into the soil."
