    Hope no one plans on fishing out of the root river after this all begins. Nothing like fishing in sewage water. Sure, they say it’s safe, but who will monitor it to make sure? The DNR? Ha!! It’s the worst thing that could happen to Racine. Why not send their sludge down the Fox River? Because it runs through more Republican areas? I’d like to also know how there was a unanimous vote when Racine was against it.

  2. WaukeshaRepub says:

    Perhaps because the voting was done by Governors of the Compact states, and not Mayors?

    Way to read and attempt even any comprehension of how the process works.

  3. Does anyone know if the diversion will impact destructively high lake levels in Racine, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee,, Sheboygan, and all of the lakeshore counties?

    Does anyone know if the Congressman has advocated for emergency tax or other relief from either the State or Federal Governments so that homeowners and business and municipalities can make the necessary repairs to preserve their lake front properties?
