LEARN MORE ABOUT POSSIBLE GREAT LAKES WATER DIVERSION-MONDAY 2/29
The Great Lakes provide the foundation of our identity as a region. Supported by all eight Great Lakes states and signed into law in 2008, the Compact was created to protect the Great Lakes from large-scale diversions of water. The city of Waukesha, Wis., — located in the Mississippi River Basin — has proposed a plan to divert water from Lake Michigan for its own use. This application will serve as a precedent for all other future diversion requests.
Learn more about this application and how to take action during a Telephone Townhall event on Monday, February 29th at 7 PM (EST). Put this extra day of the year to good use protecting the Great Lakes!
The city of Waukesha’s diversion, as currently written, does not meet the exception standards of the Compact. It is vital that as a Great Lakes region we get this decision right and that ALL Great Lakes residents’ voices are heard loud and clear: protect our Great Lakes by denying Waukesha’s application to divert Great Lakes water.
