Will New Berlin Move Lake Michigan Water Farther West, And One More Question?

How long do you think it will take for New Berlin to change the rules and begin moving diverted Lake Michigan water west of Calhoun Rd., past the current development boundary that was part of its purchase agreement with the City of Milwaukee?

I'd guess within 18 months, or whenever the housing market recovers, or if a persuasive developer prevails on New Berlin for approval of "Lake Michigan Estates."

And also:

Who's paying for the pumps and other infrastructure that Milwaukee's Water Works will need to add to its system to get Lake Michigan water across the subcontinental divide and out to New Berlin?

Just asking...since that will be a major issue that the City of Waukesha will have to grapple with, too.

The cost of the New Berlin-connected upgrade is not included in its $1.5 million one-time payment to Milwaukee.
