MAHOMET -- Local officials are trying to protect the aquifer, but they need your help. City leaders, like mayors Don Gerard and Laurel Prussing made a PSA.

It asks the public to support the aquifer becoming a sole-source aquifer. That means the EPA would have to review projects which could endanger the water. Nearly 750,000 people rely on it for safe and clean water.
