Town facing Ag Business forced to check its water for pollutants

SARATOGA – The Saratoga Town Board is expected to consider a contract that would allow the installation of 10 monitoring wells — costing about $60,000 — around the Wysocki Dairy Farm at a meeting Wednesday…to detect whether the proposed concentrated animal feeding operation would hydraulically or chemically affect the local groundwater flow system…

The wells would be tested for the presence of phosphorous, pesticides, herbicides, coliforms, total dissolved solids, total organic nitrogen, ammonia, chemical oxygen demand, nitrate nitrogen and chloride.
