Great Lakes group moves Waukesha water request forward
Representatives of Great Lakes states and two Canadian provinces have given preliminary approval to a precedent-setting request by a Wisconsin city to draw water from Lake Michigan. The group, which includes Ontario and Quebec, agreed that the water diversion application by the city of Waukesha complies with a regional agreement if certain conditions are met. Those conditions include service to a smaller area and an average limit of 31 million litres a day. The agreement requires a unanimous vote of approval by the eight states. Minnesota abstained from voting during a recent conference call.
