New Berlin Lobbying For Lake Michigan Diversion

The City of New Berlin is again pressing for a Lake Michigan diversion before the state approves the pending Great Lakes Compact, or before the likely supplier, the City of Milwaukee, says it wants to sell.

And one DNR official suggests - - again, here - - his agency can approve this request without the say-so of the other Great Lakes states, something you may have read here first.

And again, just for the record: the Wisconsin Attorney General has already opined in writing that the DNR does not have that authority - - something the traditional media continues to withhold from publishing.

Kudos for posting this, Jim. Additional water for the suburbs w/o any concessions on affordable housing or mass (dedicated) transit is a lose-lose situation for MKE.
