Great Lakes water is too precious a resource to be given away for a questionable need

Buffalo News, March 4, 2016

Diverting water from Lake Michigan should be a last resort, not the easiest route. Because the city hasn’t exhausted other options, for now the answer should be no.

The governors are scheduled to vote on Waukesha’s request in Chicago on May 23. They should do more than simply vote on this one rather small request.

The abundant water of the lakes is a precious resource that needs more than a wall to keep it in. The governors need a solid plan to use this resource to promote a blue economy that will help reverse decades of decline.
