My husband and I have lived in South County for 38 years and are on our third well.
I believe the proposed Laetitia development/expansion project located next to our property is another move by developers and some vintners to increase their production and profits at the expense of local residents.
These actions certainly decrease the water available to family landowners of this area.
The developers can afford the deeper wells; families cannot.
Never miss a local story.
The developers hope to seduce local support with the promise of job creation. Jobs related to construction projects are short term. Loss of water may be permanent.
The proposed Laetitia development is yet another example of a careless water policy and a desire for more profit at the expense of local citizens. Who will pay?
