The Wright County Board of Supervisors were asked to approve a soil compaction and wetness study by researchers at Iowa State University. Wright County Supervisor Dean Kluss explained what the study entailed.
Kluss and others see a value in having this type of research done for a number of major projects in the future.
Other counties who are affected by such projects as the carbon sequestration pipeline are raising concerns about the effect on agricultural lands, right of ways, drainage lines, and secondary roads. This study will give county supervisors a much-needed tool in alleviating construction and residual issues. The Wright County Board passed the $600 expenditure for the study in their county.
