Judge in Dane County blocks permits for eight high-capacity wells
MADISON - A judge in Dane County blocks permits issued to businesses for eight high-capacity wells.

She made the decision based on the constitutional protection of Wisconsin waterways.

The judge issued a decision Wednesday in a case brought by the conservation group Clean Wisconsin.
The group argued the Department of Natural Resources issued the permits despite concerns from its own scientists.

Clean Wisconsin worries about the impact massive water withdrawals could have on vulnerable lakes, streams and drinking water supplies.

The case highlights a longstanding controversy over high-capacity wells and their impact on waterways and aquatic life.
