Through the Great Lakes—St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body, the Great Lakes Governors of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and the Premiers of Ontario and Québec are taking the lead in protecting the world’s largest source of surface fresh water—the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Basin. We recognize that the Basin’s waters are one of the most important natural resources in North America and that we must work together to protect them.

The Great Lakes Governors and Premiers created the Regional Body on December 13, 2005, by signing the Great Lakes—St. Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement. The Agreement details how the Great Lakes States, Ontario and Québec will manage and protect the Basin and provide a framework for each State and Province to enact laws for its protection. The Governors and Premiers are working aggressively to put the Agreement into action.

For those seeking information on the Waukesha Diversion Application, all information on the Application, associated documents, notices and opportunities to comment can be found at www.waukeshadiversion.org. The website is jointly hosted by the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body and the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Council.
