ANGOLA, Ind. (WFFT) - Dozens of people are working to figure out what steps to take against massive drilling in the Michindoh Aquifer.

About 50 people attended a meeting Wednesday in Angola where a civil engineer from Trine University talked about the aquifer below.

As FOX 55 has exclusively reported, Artesian of Pioneer is exploring the possibility of piping millions of gallons to the Toledo area from the Michindoh aquifer under several Indiana, Michigan and Ohio counties.

Documents filed with the Ohio EPA said that includes a well field in Fulton County, Ohio.

Wednesday's presentation suggested it would take about 25 years for one well field to make an impact on the water in Indiana.

There will be another meeting discussing the Michindoh Aquifer at the Cupbearer Cafe in Auburn from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
