To the Editor:

Water: the liquid that descends as rain and forms rivers, lakes and seas. Here in South Dakota most of our rivers are our aquifer, one in the same. In Hot Springs our river is a spring, warm and a lot cleaner than most places in the USA. I have looked! The water we share on this earth is recycled, the same water from the beginning. As we pollute, we recycle that too.

This aquifer system below the Black Hills is connected in several areas, USGS. And how we treat this water comes back to us. I vote no against allowing any uranium mining to further contaminate our water. I ask that you all register to vote and vote how you feel this coming election. You , we have the power to change this cycle of destruction by learning the truth and placing people in office that listen and care. Someone got us to this point, the point of no state monitoring.

How many people have considered visiting or moving to West Virginia, lately? They didn't have state monitoring either. Those poor people. The companies, the state, or the experts can't prove they won't contaminate our aquifer, in fact they all say the contamination will move, the debate is how fast.

Write or call: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555. Mail stop: Ron Burrows T8F5, 301-415-7182 ask for Ron Burrows Dewey-Burdock project manager
