Wisconsin LWV takes action on Waukesha Water Diversion

January 14, 2014

Congrats to the Wisconsin League of Women Voters for urging the Wisconsin Department of Resources not to approve the City of Waukesha’s request for a diversion of Lake Michigan water out of the watershed, unless certain conditions were met. 

The 2008 Great Lakes Compact protects the water resources of the Great Lakes Basin from diversions and excessive withdrawals. States may consider requests for diversions under strict conditions.
