    COUNTY EXECUTIVE FARROW AND COUNTY BOARD CHAIRMAN DECKER SUPPORT WAUKESHA’S LAKE MICHIGAN WATER DIVERSION APPLICATION

    (WAUKESHA, WI)…Today, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow and County Board Chairman Paul Decker testified at Carroll University in strong support of the City of Waukesha’s application to divert Lake Michigan water at a public hearing held by the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body and Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Council members.

    “Thirteen years of sound research led by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission has gone into developing a sustainable water supply plan for all of southeastern Wisconsin.  The best and brightest water utility professionals from around the state, including representatives from the City of Milwaukee, endorsed the Regional Water Supply Plan that embraces the City of Waukesha accessing Lake Michigan water,” Farrow said. “Today we stand in proud support of moving an important part of that plan forward by supporting the City of Waukesha’s application to use and return Lake Michigan water.”    

    The Waukesha County Board adopted the Regional Water Supply Plan and supported contributing over $200,000 toward the detailed research as a refinement to its own Comprehensive Development Plan.  Since the plan’s approval, the City of Waukesha began the application process to divert Lake Michigan water as outlined by the terms of the Great Lakes Water Compact.  Late last year, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources determined the City of Waukesha had met all the Compact requirements. 

    “The conversion by the City of Waukesha to a Lake Michigan source of water with return flow is grounded in years of research, sound science and responsible land use planning.  We encourage the Regional Body to consider this information in developing its Declaration of Finding and encourage the Governors’ Compact Council to support the City of Waukesha application,” Decker concluded.
