“It is good news that the Great Lakes states and provinces group decided to reduce the amount of water proposed to be taken, but if they allow this, it allows others to do the same,” said Ms. Muter. “The fact that they did reduce the amount of water that can be taken makes me suspicious that they are going to allow Waukesha’s request to be approved. Why would they make this decision if they are going to reject the application? It may be that they just delayed making the final decision. Either way it is not good, it would be precedent setting and others will follow with similar applications.”
