The Bryan Times,

I speak for the Michindoh Aquifer and the need to protect it. The proposed AquaBounty project in Pioneer will be using up to 5.25 million gallons of our water each day. Withdrawing this amount from our aquifer will affect the aquifer’s ability to regenerate on a sustainable level and it will be placed at risk of depletion. This amazing natural source of clean water has not only provided life to humans, but also to aquatic life, avian life, insect life and plant life. AquaBounty does not intend to recycle the water because of the expense, but instead the treated water will be dumped into the St. Joseph River. How will this massive amount of dumping affect the life in and along the river? No one can really be certain.
