Dear [Decision Maker],
I'm writing to urge you to not to write a permit allowing Burr Oak Heifers to pollute groundwater with up to 28 mg/L of nitrates, a level far exceeding the 10 mg/L enforcement levels. Excess nitrates threaten public health and drinking water, and are linked to "blue baby" syndrome, miscarriages, birth defects, cancer, and other serious health issues. Too many Wisconsin wells already contain excess levels of nitrates, and allowing permits that assume additional pollution will occur virtually guarantees that our water will be less safe.
Thank you for accepting my comments and considering my concerns. Setting permit levels with excess nitrate levels for Burr Oak could set a dangerous precedent for public health. Please uphold the DNR's mission of protecting our fragile water resources by decreasing nitrate levels in this permit.
