U.S. Reps. Candice Miller, R-Harrison Township, and Debbie Dingell, D-Dearborn, urged Snyder to reject the request, saying it would be a “precedent-setting setback.” The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Regional Body recently gave preliminary approval to the proposal.

“The compact allows for water diversion to communities within the basin, but only under rare and strict conditions,” Miller and Dingell wrote Snyder. “We do not believe the city of Waukesha has made a compelling case.”
