Friend of the Mahomet Aquifer

Great Support at Festival

What a great weekend at the Clinton Apple & Pork Festival! We talked to hundreds of people concerned about protecting the Mahomet Aquifer, and gathered hundreds of signatures on petitions asking Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and the USEPA to take action to protect our sole source of water for over 750,000 people in Central Illinois. A huge thanks to Champaign County Healthcare Consumers, Sierra Club, and WATCH for their help creating a successful event.
