The level at the end of July was lower than on Wednesday, when Jenson went to evaluate it. It needs to lower by roughly nine more feet before the next steps can be taken in construction as a part of the facilitys permit conditions. (Times photo: Bridget Cooke)
MONROE - During a Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting Thursday, members requested an update from Green County Conservationist Todd Jenson on the status of the incoming concentrated animal feeding operation Pinnacle Dairy, LLC. Jenson shared a panoramic photo taken of the site taken this week, stretching in a 180-degree view over the 127 acres of farmland, soon to be cement, along County FF and Decatur-Sylvester Road in the Township of Sylvester. A retention pond butted up to Decatur-Sylvester Road while equipment drove through flooded tracks in the dirt.
