Each bulleted item in the first paragraph - - Proposal, Background, EIS Process, etc. - - is a actually a button that takes you to a separate, detailed page. I am posting this because I get inquiries about what's happening, or how to find documentation, or timetables, etc.
City of Waukesha Water Diversion Application
Current StatusAugust 16, 2011 - The DNR is currently drafting the technical review and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the City of Waukesha's application for a diversion of Great Lakes water. Drafts of these documents are not expected to be complete before November 2011. Once drafts are finished, they will be posted to this website and available for public review.
