Hearings on Lake Michigan Water Scheduled

Posted on July 12, 2011 at 9:48 PM

One item some of us will be asking to be studied in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is the entire concept of Waukesha having no alternative for water. If there is truly no viable alternative then the city should be allowed to use Lake Michigan water, provided all adequate protections are put in place. However, Waukesha continues its plans to drill new shallow water aquifer wells in the Lather property adjacent to the Vernon Marsh Wildlife Area. Why? So that if, when they do get Lake Michigan water, they will have a backup source of water. What? If there is a backup source of water then there can be no justification to get Lake Michigan water because there is an alternative! The city cannot have it both ways! The application could be denied for this reason alone.
