    I would like to think that the DNR, IDEM, and the EPA would be all over this.

    I'm not against farmers or amish. I grew up on a farm & raised hogs for a lil time in my life. I live in a rural community. There is ways to control the manure in these CFO's & they should be made to follow the laws. The problem is money talks with all of this & alot of this is hid under the table.

    Dogwood lake as well as 22 other ponds at Glendale Fish and Wildlife past 20 yrs has been hammered by the Amish to where DNR finally came in and put a 9” size limit on crappie. 1200 acres in size. Alittle too lake for a size limit that has now been in effect as nobody around here sees any improvement as it used to have outstanding blue gill, red ear, crappie and bass in it. And it’s getting weed overgrown with everything dumping into it. Weeds this last summer too exploded in all the bays and shallows over in West Boggs unfishable and the algae and bacteria in the water took Boggs over with. My argument is, if DRN doesn’t put a size limit on Boggs as small as it is, it will end up just like Dogwood as a Boggs won’t be able to stand up to the fishing pressure this year. You put 6-8 even 10 amish on a small pontoon boat and they fish till everybody has a limit including the kids and they keep everything they catch even if it’s 3” big. Add the waste running into the lake every time it rains to the fishing pressure and it’s not going to be able to handle it. It is what it is. It’s hard for the small community of Logoottee and Martin/Davis Co with no industry and little population to turn down over a million dollars cash income from the park and lake as their income is limited from other means. And they have a very aggressive advertising campaign being in various Boat/Vacation Shows and the printing of brochures at State welcome centers, etc, pushing that park and lake. At some point in time, you reach a point of no return.
