Waukesha Freeman Could Clarify Today's Water Story
The Freeman had this top on its water story today:
Town of Waukesha will not participate in city’s water app
Special to The Freeman
TOWN OF WAUKESHA – The Town Board continued to wrangle over a number of issues at its regular meeting Thursday, with emotions and contention running high at times during the three-and-a half hour session.
But one agenda item that brought the board into unison was a decision not to participate in the city of Waukesha’s quest for water through Lake Michigan.
The Town Board voted not to participate in the Great Lakes water application process, a pivotal move that will likely solidify boundaries between the town and city moving forward.
But the board also voted on a map that would allow town residents, many of whom currently receive and sewer service from the city, continued access to the city’s services.However, these two accounts are less confusing (and I apologize for the way different fonts have reproduced below). First, from my blog this morning:
I would believe that those area of the Town are already connected to the Waukesha Water Utility to due to prior well contamination issues.
Should they be annexed?
That's a premature question. If Waukesha is not successful in it's request for a diversion exception, that's an issue up to the homeowners.
The burden now placed on Waukesha becomes having the Water Utility boundaries redrawn by SEWRPC in a manor consistent with the compact requirements.
Combine that with the statements made by Riverkeeper that Underwood Creek may no longer be a return route under consideration and Waukesha make me wonder if Waukesha has run out of time.
With Lake Michigan at it's near all time low in depth. Another hot summer will seal the fate of this application.
