Protect Our Great Lakes by Telling the DNR to Deny Waukesha's Attempts to Divert Great Lakes Water!
There's still time to act!  

All three of Wisconsin DNR’s public hearings on the Waukesha water diversion (Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Racine) were packed this week with people speaking about Waukesha’s application to divert Great Lakes water.

Representatives from the Compact Implementation Coalition were at all three public hearings to make sure the voices of thousands of Wisconsin residents we represent were heard.

While the public hearings were well-attended and the public’s message was certainly heard, there’s still work to do!

The DNR is accepting comments until this Friday, August 28, 2015 at 11:59pm CST.

There is still time to speak up and make your voice heard!
