To the editor:
We own a farm in Dallas County. The Raccoon River runs through our farm.
We have a black Lab named Eddie. Of course, I can’t keep Eddie out of the river. This is the first year that Eddie has not gotten infections and rashes from the Raccoon River.
We want to thank those CAFO operators who manage their manure properly and those rural homeowners who do not discharge their septic systems through their tiles into the Raccoon River.
One day I hope my grandchildren and great-grandchildren can swim in the Raccoon River as my wife, children and I once did.
