Watering Restrictions Are A Must If Communities Want Lake Michigan Water

Suburbs are implementing restrictions on lawn sprinkling - - though Waukesha's ordinance is too weak because it levies a financial penalty after three warnings, and has yet to result in a single forfeiture - - are more than good water conservation policy.

Without these restrictions in place, and demonstrating real water savings, applications from these communities for Lake Michigan diversions are going to find little sympathy from regulators in other states that will have to approve the diversions.

What the heck did you guys do to get on Daley's bad side. He sounds mad as hell.

So, all the sewage in Lake Michigan comes Milwaukee.

What's going on. Will we go to war over it. I watched this interview on one of these Global Warming doomsday scenarios, and one was Great lake Wars.

I always thought the problem was all the Chicago garbage we have to deal with. They really don't even have a recycling program there, I don't know about Milwaukee.
