What is known today as the Great Water Alliance, started its historic journey more than a decade ago. In 2016, it received unanimous approval from the Great Lakes states who agreed that switching to Lake Michigan water was the only reasonable option to provide the 70,000 residents of Waukesha with a sustainable source of safe drinking water.

Waukesha Water Utility wants you to understand why it is important for our community to secure a Lake Michigan water supply. That’s why we’ve made several recent presentations available for review.
Our efforts to bring a safe and sustainable water supply to Waukesha wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration and cooperation of our neighboring communities. Up-to-date information about how the new program may affect your community throughout the process will be shared here on our website, as well as in our e-newsletter.
