Farmers appeal to St. Louis County

Farmers roughly 45 miles northwest of Duluth are engaging with St. Louis County officials Tuesday for the second time in recent weeks to discuss how to deal with rising water tables which farmers say are preventing them from planting and getting hay, grain and other crop yields.

Im starting to lose my land, Tom Horvath, of Meadowlands, said. The water table has come up significantly and were starting to have wetter years.

The meeting, at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Elmer Town Hall, will bring together county officials, engineers and farmers in an effort to work toward a solution. At the center of the issue is a system of judicial ditches carved into the landscape more than a century ago.

Were losing land and people are really troubled by it, Commissioner Mike Jugovich said. I dont blame them a bit.
