Your attention is directed to an excellent editorial in the Thursday, Jan 3rd Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about the need for private sector, state and federal urgent attention to Great Lakes' water issues.
The editorial title says it all:
"Make it a priority: Protecting the Great Lakes from threats such as diversions, invasive species and falling lake levels needs to be part of the presidential election debate."
(Bold-face in the original.)
The editorial was sparked by a frontpage story Wednesday by reporter Dan Egan on water level declines in Lake Michigan having reached recorded lows.
A Waukesha Water Utility lobbyist didn't like my interpretation of that story. You can read my blog posting ,and his comments just as he sent to them for posting, among others pro-and-con, online here.
