  • Town Map - Shaded area represents initial fields proposed by Wysocki fields.  Although final land purchase does not reflect initial proposal exactly, land parcels are scattered throughout the township and essentially line the creeks and waterways.  Non-shaded areas represent mainly residential lots and privately owned acreage

  • Map of HCW / cone of depression -  This map shows (in yellow) the number of residential wells that fall within the three-mile cone of depression associated with the proposed high capacity wells.  Map shows both Saratoga township and the neighboring Tri-Lakes area of Rome
