Note this major change that pre-empts local water conservation and land use policies statewide by requiring one municipality to extend water and serve service to another community, upon request, that wants it.
This could blow a hole in the Great Lakes Compact and the legitimacy of Wisconsin as an honest steward of waters in the Lake Michigan and Superior watersheds just as Waukesha's Great Lakes diversion request is primed to be moved to the other seven Great Lakes states and two Canadian provinces because the Compact establishes regional rules for water transfers and emphasizes conservation.
Developers win! Sprawl everywhere. Border wars and litigation forever. Heads-up, Milwaukee Water Works - - they're coming for you.
And more evidence that Walker and his gang are the champions of Big Government, and always have been despite all the propaganda.
From Blue Cheddar:
#66 Extension of water or sewer service between municipalities(this coupled with the changes in the Madison Sewer and Water + Contemplating the Waukesha wanting water out of Lake Michigan thing – LOOKS BIG)
