I recently sent the following article to a number of communities in the North Country where factory farms are a vexing issue.  It’s a sequel to an article I posted here a short time ago, “Cow manure in Potsdam’s drinking water,” which featured this disturbing video, taken by a resident of Parishville. The video shows cow sewage “slurry” from factory farms making its way into brooks and streams feeding into the Racquette River.   Yep, Potsdam draws its drinking water from the Racquette and, by extension, these brooks and streams.

I am a member of FARM, Friends Against Rural Mismanagement.  A bunch of cranky old-timers who object to farmland, woodland, wildland, marshland, rivers and lakes being screwed — regardless of who is holding the screwdriver.

Here is a screenshot of the beginning of the article.  Click here to access the entire article online.
