Using Great Lakes water the right way.
In June of 2016, the Great Lakes Compact Council unanimously approved Waukesha’s application to source water from Lake Michigan and return the same amount used via the Root River.
Now, as the Great Water Alliance works to create a safe and sustainable supply of clean drinking water for Waukesha, we pledge to keep the citizens and communities who will be affected fully informed.
This site is intended not only to educate, but to inspire. We welcome your feedback and we welcome you to the journey.
