Work was partially funded by state drought-relief program
Thursday, August 16, 2012
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon visited a farm and checked out a new cost-share water well in Moniteau County near Clarksburg on Wednesday.
The well is on Clarksburg Farms, a livestock operation owned by Charles and Carol Rackers. The governor was on hand to survey the well and to hear from family farmers about the need for water and how the water access projects are working.
The well on the Clarksburg farm was a part of Nixon’s program for relief for farmers whose livestock have been suffering because of the lengthy drought.
