Re: Low Water
I would like to see a study on how much more water over the years is being sent from the Great Lakes south, to feed the farmers of the Midwest and even California.
None, other than flushing Chicago's toilets down the Mississippi. There are pretty strong International & US Federal regulations in place that states any water pumped out of the basin must be returned to the basin.
We currently have two WI cities, just over the basin divide, that are trying to get access to Lake Michigan water. The holdup is getting approval from the six Great Lakes Governors and two Canadian Provinces after they can show they will treat waste water and return it to Lake Michigan.
