PROTECT THE COMPACT, SIGN THE PLEDGE: Individuals
As a concerned citizen of the Great Lakes region, I take seriously my responsibility to protect our shared natural resources. Therefore, I pledge my public support for the following core principles of the Great Lakes Compact:
Great Lakes water must not be sent outside the Basin except in very limited circumstances.
Exceptions to the ban on diversions shall be limited to those that meet all criteria in the legislation, including that the water be used primarily for the benefit of residential households.
All Great Lakes states will enforce the Compact using a consistent standard to review proposed diversions and other uses of Great Lakes water.
When you sign this pledge, you send a message to policy makers and elected officials that you support the Great Lakes Compact and expect them to do the same.
