""The wells, they say, were put in the wrong place. They should have been put further up stream where the elevation and water table would not be impacted"". B.S.!

They knew exactly where they were putting those water wells, a convenient insiders miscalculation. Going all the way up to Santa Fe $$$$$$$$$$
really?

I am not sure if I read this right, but it sounds like they are about to shut the flood gates at Brantley and let the river dry up. Christmas on the Stinky black mud anyone ?

The NMISC knew their would eventually be some dry wells. The NMISC expected their to be "collateral damage" they just did not anticipate it coming so quickly.

The "collateral damage" was "premeditated" by the NMISC. That is a fact.
