"We`re the first case in the common law development of the Great Lakes Compact," Grant Trigger, clean-up manager for the former GM properties in Michigan said.

The Great Lakes Compact is a formal agreement between the Great Lakes states. A parallel agreement includes the two Canadian provinces that border the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway.

On Wednesday, February 17th, Waukesha's Carroll University hosted a meeting of theGreat Lakes Regional Body -- a group of representatives from eight states and two Canadian provinces which surround the Great Lakes. Those who attended discussed whether Waukesha will get its water from Lake Michigan.
