“It would be real hard on our infrastructure. It`s hard enough right now, we don`t have the money to keep the roads up that we do have. If you increase your traffic by 30, 40, 50 percent, it`s going to really tie up our resources. And we would look to the state for additional help with that”, said Harry Bergstad, a McHenry County commissioner.
Cambridge Production has finished their drilling at the site after only two weeks of work. Because the oil company was given a confidential permit, information about the oil well is not being released to the public until June.
