Waukesha Environmental Group Advocates For Strong Great Lakes compact

The Waukesha Environmental Action League (WEAL), fighting the good fight for conservation from the heart of Waukesha, again lays out the merits of a strong Great Lakes Compact - - this time in an op-ed in the Waukesha Freeman by Steve Schmuki.

The Compact is an eight-state water resource management agreement: Wisconsin will soon consider whether to approve and implement the Compact, and forces in Waukesha County's business community and political leadership want to weaken the Compact.

The op-ed is a response to a previous piece by the Waukesha County Executive, Dan Vrakas, who was arguing for the exact opposite, and, in fact, argued for changes to the pending Compact so radical as to kill it.

I say, advantage WEAL. Thanks to Steven Schmuki for writing it.
