Michigan Paper Suggests "Lake Looters" May Be In Communities Just Outside The Great Lakes Basin

Though the Ann Arbor News takes New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson to task for his suggestion that the Great Lakes states should ship water out to the dry (but water-wasting) southwest, the paper also suggests that the real threat to Great Lakes supplies could come from communities that sit just outside the Great Lakes basin.

That's often code for communities in Waukesha County - - from which some leaders have lobbied Michigan leaders to look favorably on potential diversion applications.

Could be that the message from just west of the basin is not getting through.
