The great news about Great Lakes water.

In June of 2016, the Great Lakes Compact unanimously approved Waukesha’s application to borrow water through a pipeline from Lake Michigan, and then treat it and return it all to the lake via the Root River.

We pledge to keep everyone who may be affected fully informed, every step of the way. To that end, we developed, a website that will be the information hub for all things related to the project.
