Since water is a problem in this area, he plans on putting in a private water system with a water tower because he also plans on putting in 300 homes besides the 300 + mobile homes.  But the piece of land he is planning on putting the well on is listed by Semcog as wetlands. Can a well big enough to supply 600 families be drilled on a wetland?

	The planned well may not tap into the same water source as the
wetlands--it is likely to be drilled into a much deeper aquifer.  The
question is whether it is legal for them to drill the well in the wetland.
