Waukesha/Waukesha Water War Widens

As I have written before, there are two Waukesha's - - the larger city and the smaller town, and now the town is interested in attaching conditions to the city's efforts to locate new wells in the town.

This is a fight over water supplies, and about power, as the town knows the city can annex or otherwise extend its influence in the town.

This is also the kind of local skirmish that the city wants to minimize by looking to Lake Michigan for its long-term water supply solution.
