Public Notice:  City of Waukesha Diversion Application. Under the “Great Lakes Compact” and the companion Agreement, diversions of water from the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin (Basin) to areas outside the Basin are banned with limited exceptions. The City of Waukesha, Wisconsin, is a community in a county that straddles the Basin divide and has applied for such an exception. The City proposes to divert up to 10.1 million gallons per day of Basin water, based on a projected average daily demand. The Regional Body and Compact Council have begun a review of the application. Under the Agreement that Declaration of Finding may be a denial, an approval, or an approval with conditions. The Governors’ Compact Council will consider the Regional Body’s Declaration and then issue the final decision on the application. If all members of the Governors’ Compact Council vote to approve or approve with conditions, the State of Wisconsin can then proceed with its regulatory decision making and permitting as appropriate. If there is a dissenting vote, then the application cannot move forward. Public comment and participation will be important in the decision making process. Additional information is available at .
