PIONEER, Ohio (WFFT) - Artesian of Pioneer's plan to sell groundwater from northwest Ohio to Toledo suburbs is moving forward.

FOX 55 was the first to tell you about this plan in July.

Right now, the Ohio EPA is reviewing Artesian of Pioneer's application for production wells in the Michindoh Aquifer.

The Ohio EPA said the next step includes a site visit with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

In the meantime, several governmental agencies in Ohio and Indiana passed resolutions opposing the plan.
