Ed Garvey Weighs In On Great Lakes Issues

Nice to see activists statewide - - in this case, Ed Garvey - - beginning to take note of efforts to move water out of Lake Michigan while important legislation to preserve and administer Great Lakes water remains blocked by Waukesha County business interests and legislators.

Wisconsin media have tended to define the Great Lakes Compact, and diversion applications from Lake Michigan, as southeastern Wisconsin issues only.

But the Great Lakes are central to the entire state's economy, and questions addressed by the compact, including bottled water export and conservation programs, are state and regional issues.

So thanks to Ed: more coverage is welcome.
