BRYAN, Ohio (WFFT) - A northwest Ohio water company is looking at pumping millions of gallons of water to the Toledo area.
The Michindoh Aquifer is where thousands of people from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan get their drinking water from every day.
Artesian of Pioneer wants to sell that water to cities along Lake Erie that currently get their water from Toledo.
However, many people are worried what this could mean for their future.
In fact, the city of Bryan is ready to fight.
"This is our sole source of water. It's not economically feasible for us to get water from anywhere else," said Bryan mayor Carrie Schlade.
"There's just concern about future generations sustainability of the aquifer that it could be depleted," said Sherry Fleming, Williams County Alliance.
Pioneer's mayor Ed Kidston is also AOP's CEO, but he couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.
A protest is scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sunday at the Williams County Courthouse in Bryan.
