I was just thinking about this again, and a comment I read earlier from someone about how they thought we could bring jobs to Vermont -they were mostly thinking along the lines of resource extraction.

Resource extraction is one of the biggest source points for pollution, whether it's logging, mining, etc through groundwater.

As illustrated by this question, lots of people are on well water, and there are several areas that already have really bad health issues due to well water-I'm mostly thinking Bridport, Orwell area, and then south to Yankee and then the pfa thing. We've already got a ton of water quality issues, we really need to be careful as a state how we build our economy so that we can actually survive here without getting sick
