Reviews, Debate About Waukesha Water Diversion Reaches Pennsylvania

I'd noted over the weekend that veteran Ohio newspaper reporter Tom Henry had published in the Toledo Blade a long look at Waukesha's bid for Great Lakes water and the skeptical reaction it was getting in Canada.

Turns out that The Blade, in Ohio, has a sister paper in Pittsburgh, and it ran Henry's story, too.

I recently saw a document from CH2M HILL dated March 5th, 2014 that states, "In recent years, groundwater levels indicate an increasing trend in the deep aquifer wells."

If the utility consulting engineering firm says the aquifer is rising, that's contrary to the application and every single public listening session and presentation by the utility and it's hired firms such as yours.

If I were the Canadians I recommend to the 7 others states that it make more sense to take a 20 year wait and see approach because Waukesha's diversion application doesn't meet the criteria if the aquifer isn't dropping and radium can be filtered.

I await your response.
