Milwaukee getting notice as regional water industry hub
The biggest newspaper in upstate New York comes to Milwaukee for a visit and finds the city's water-based research and development sector is the Great Lakes leader:
In dozens of interviews with government officials, economic development experts, business executives, water researchers and environmentalists, a portrait emerges of some Great Lakes communities beginning to realize that their plentiful water supply represents a new selling card to reverse decades of population losses or stagnation.
Great Lakes communities can boast of an asset that other parts of the country – and world – can only dream of: a water resource that can be tapped for new, high-tech manufacturing, agriculture, food processing, cooling computer server “farms,” power generation and recreation.
Milwaukee appears to be the furthest along in embracing this concept.
And this is all despite the lack of assistance, or even resistance, by the Republicans in the state.
