PIONEER, Ohio (WFFT) - The Michindoh Aquifer may not even exist according to Artisean of Pioneer CEO Ed Kidston.

FOX 55 first reported in July about Kidston's plan to sell millions of gallons of water a day to communities around Toledo.

"The Blade" in Toledo reports Kidston questioned the aquifer's existence while reading a prepared statement during Monday's Pioneer city council meeting.

Kidston is also the mayor of Pioneer.

An Indiana DNR map shows the Kendallville Aquifer System covering the same area of the Michindoh Aquifer.

Many communities in Indiana and Ohio have formally passed resolutions against Artisean of Pioneer's proposal.

"The Blade" reported test wells in Fulton County, Ohio are already in place.
