Racine River Renewal On Waukesha Wastewater Return Route

The City of Racine has some ambitious development plans along the Root River - - so, again we ask, is this the best route for The City ofWaukesha to the west to dispose of millions of gallons of treated wastewater daily on the back end of its proposed Lake Michigan water diversion?

The Root River is flood-prone, too.

Racine's State Rep. Cory Mason, (D) and other local officials there have been saying "no."

According to the latest letter sent to Waukesha's newby Mayor and diversion exception supporter, Shawn Reilly,Waukesha is back to square one on the return flow route.

The clock has run out a long time ago on the self imposed drop dead date to start construction of face a $5000 per day fine from the DNR for non-compliance with the radium mandate.

The application is no where near approval by the DNR and the DNR makes it quite clear to the new Mayor in their letter: You don't own a big red easy button that you can hit to make this thing happen at your pace.

Mayor Reilly, welcome to the world of truth and reality. Fantasyland was never Larry's strong suit.

Why wouldn't racine want walkersha's pee-water for their little river project and harbor?

And the floating tootsie rolls would make for a festive feel.
