 Hmm I'm tempted... JUNE 2023 MONTHLY BULLSH*T REPORT  You know professional liars are very big on all things professional as in "Oh using the word bullsh*t isn't professional. O.K. by me. I've seen way too much lack of professionalism here in Elmira over the last thirty years. Not everybody and not all the time. But still way too much. Another expression is "You can fool some of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but you can't fool all the people all the time." I like that one a lot. 

The off-site (i.e. Elmira Aquifers) pumping rates are sad for the month of June 2023. Pumping well W3R has a Target Rate of 18.5 l/sec and only pumped at 16.6 l/sec. Excuses for this well just like the others are a dime a dozen and just about as sad. On-Site Pumping Well PW5 has a Target of 1.8 l/sec and managed only 1.0 l/sec. Other off-site pumping failures in June include W5A, and E7. Lanxess dispute E7 claiming that pulse pumping (i.e. intermittent) is O.K. Can't imagine why I'm doubtful about that statement. Both on and off-site wells with extremely low Target Rates include the Upper Aquifer Wells at .5  l/sec total pumping for ten or eleven shallow wells as well as W6A, W6B and W8 at .32, .44 and .1 l/sec pumping rates. With these pumping rates is it any wonder that we are not going to have groundwater at drinking water standards in 2028 or for likely decades afterwards?
