Great Lakes' water shouldn't bail out Waukesha's irresponsibilityThis video is a must watch for anyone who cares about the current issue going on with Waukesha wanting Milwaukees water..
If you're not up to speed on this issue..heres a good breakdown:
Waukesha expects to use up to 10.1 million gallons of Lake Michigan water a day. It would buy water from the Oak Creek water utility, treat it and return it to Lake Michigan via the Root River.
Per the Wisconsin Gazette, there will be a public hearing tomorrow as well in Waukesha on this issue if anyone is interested in coming to testify or sending in testimony.Dan Duchniak, general manager of the Waukesha Water Utility, said the city has studied its water supply options since 2002. He said Waukesha has had more than 100 public meetings on the proposal. Waukesha is seeking Lake Michigan water because its current system of wells does not meet federal radium standards on days of heavy use.
Milwaukee and Racine don't want to be Waukesha's toilet...and we shouldn't be using Great Lakes water to bail out Waukesha's irresponsibility. Make your voice heard.
