PLAN COMMISSION MEETING
6/24/10
Madge Town Hall

Called meeting to order at 7:00 pm.
Present:
Plan Commission Board –Roger Koerner, Tim Jung, Ron Rosencran, & Scott Plaster
Clerk – Michelle Jung
Citizens – Mike Baker, Leroy Sandridge, Bill Lennox, Nate Collar (DNR), Shane Taylor, Nick Allen

Minutes from the last meeting were read and approved.

High Capacity Wells – Nate Collar (DNR) – inspects the high capacity wells. Town of Madge has seven high capacity wells (HCW). Cranberry Bog, Sam West (M), Mark West (B), Golf Course (4). These wells must submit a pumpage report every year. The HCW are capable of producing 70 gallons per minute. Normal usage is less than half the maximum. Most local homeowner wells use more water per year than a HCW does. Most home wells are not constructed to deal with the draw down the drought has caused. Shallow and sand point wells are the ones going dry.
HCW permits come from Madison. The only way a permit is denied is if it impacts streams, outstanding water resource, or municipality water.
If DNR receives a complaint about a well going dry, Nate investigates neighboring wells, pumps, and water level. He has not had any complaints near HCWs.
Questions:
Should the Plan Commission be keeping track of any wells that go dry?
Can the Town request that all HCWs be a low-pressure system?
Should the PC look into the information from well drillers to see if the water level has changed?
Grant available for capping abandoned wells. These wells could harm the water.

Next meeting compile questions for Nate. Will have back at another meeting.
Nate is in office Mon. & Wed. 635-4028 nathan.coller@wi.gov
