Harvest Beneath the Hills

Harvest Beneath the Hills
Excavating and removing well beyond the top layer of this prairie land in Wabaunsee County, where layers of limestone is being removed. While we flew our drone up above and near the perimeter of this particular operation this past Spring (April 23, 2017), this has been going on for years. A area North of Muddy Creek road was in the same condition several years ago. After the project was completed the land was covered over with earth and leveled.

Problem is it will never be the same and I often wonder what may have been below those surfaces other than layers and shelves of limestone. And I wonder what this does to the purification process of the water table in this particular area of the Kansas Flint Hills.
