dog urine - wellhead protection area

Asked May 10, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

Another dog park question. Does dog urine have a negative impact on a wetland area or a wellhead protection area? If there is any effect would it be worse in times of drought because it wouldn't be diluted by rain -- or worse because rain washes urine into the soil?
