WI DNR sends Waukesha water plan for public comment

Not surprisingly, Wisconsin's DNR says Waukesha's plan to divert water from the Great Lakes and return it via the Root River is complete enough to be reviewed by the public, and barring major developments, should be on its way to the other seven Great Lakes states for their reviews in about six months.

Unanimous approval ivy all eight of the states is required before a diversion can be implemented.

We;ll see what the other states have to say about matters like whether Waukesha can send some of the water to neighboring communities which never said they needed diverted water, and whether sending the return flow back through the Root River as treated waste water is a superior method environmentally that sending it in a pipe to the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District.

More later.
