Please find the e-mail I sent to the Bureau of Land Management:
I recently learned of the request by Plaster City to increase their water usage. I am most certainly against any increase in Plaster City's water usage.
I'm sure that you are aware that the Ocotillo-Coyote Wells aquifer has been designated as a "sole-source aquifer" by the EPA. Does the Plaster City request fall under this umbrella? Does or has Plaster City (U.S. Gypsum) received any type of federal funding?
Has an EPA study of the aquifer been conducted? If not there needs to be. What is the size of the aquifer? What can it support? How fast is it replenished? Will our wells go dry?
