By September, the U.S. Geologic Services will have run through the $500,000 allotment it received from the state several years ago to study the Michindoh aquifer, county commissioner Terry Rummel said Thursday.

Rummel said his information came from a recent update he received from David Lampe, supervisory hydrologist with the USGS Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center, based in Indianapolis. Rummel is the county’s representative on the Ohio Michigan Indiana (OMI) Council of Governments, which is coordinating efforts by the USGS to provide scientific data on the Michindoh, the aquifer underneath Williams County and eight other counties in the tri state area.
