Great Lakes Concerns

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

Ontario says it’s concerned about a Wisconsin city’s request to take water from the Great Lakes.
Waukesha has asked the Great Lake states for permission to divert water from Lake Michigan because its own aquifer is running low and the water is contaminated with cancer-causing radium.
Under the current agreement between eight U-S states and Ontario and Quebec, diversions of water away from the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River basin are banned.
Ontario argues that Waukesha doesn’t meet the rules for becoming the first exception to the ban.
