Waters of Wisconsin

Waukesha is the first community to successfully receive permission to buy water from the Great Lakes (specifically, Lake Michigan) under the 2008 Great Lakes Compact.

Is the diversion of Lake Michigan waters Waukesha's only option to secure "a safe and sustainable source of water for its residents"?

When the Wisconsin Academy was founded in 1870, the American fascination with science was in full bloom. Today, not so much.

June 1990 was a wet one in Brown County with a total of 14.2 inches of rainfall recorded at the Austin Straubel Airport.

I have lived most of my life on the reservation of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa located on the south shore of Lake Superior.

How are we crafting policy to address today’s water challenges and what roles do scientific research and knowledge play in informing these policies?

Water was threatening to spill over the top of my hip boots. In early May, the opening of trout fishing season, the water of the Wolf River was cold.
