A Sample Comment Letter:

Dear Mr. Wawczak,

I am writing to oppose the permitting of the class II injection well known as Swanson 4-7 SWD (Permit# MI-015-2D-002). I oppose this Injection Well because I want to protect our water and am concerned about the impact on nearby drinking water aquifers in our communities of Johnstown and Barry Twps.

(Please add your own input.) Thank you. Sincerely, Your name
