Dear Commissioners,

For the sake of the basic safety and wellbeing of the citizens, businesses and visitors to the region served by the Fairpoint Regional Utility System, I believe access to clean and safe drinking water is one of the primary responsibilities of our local governments.

Because of the documented risks mineral extraction (mining) poses to the safety of our drinking water aquifers, such activity has been prohibited in the East Milton Wellfield Protection Area by the Santa Rosa County Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan). I oppose the effort to expand mineral extraction or other activity that was prohibited by the Comp Plan prior to November 2020, and I urge the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners to keep this important protection in the Comp Plan.
