On Thursday, March 31, Bill Schuette sent a formal letter to the council of Great Lakes governors considering whether to approve the controversial request by Waukesha, Wis., to divert water from the Great Lakes basin.

More questions about the request need to be answered, Schuette wrote.

"Waukesha's request to divert millions of gallons from Lake Michigan is very serious and unless the strict exception standard is met, should be denied."
