Great Lakes Water

  Michigan Free De jure State  The letter below is from a year ago.  Notice how vague and inconclusive the reply is?      No mention of big industry (Nestles) buying property on the shore line to “pipe” the water out of the lakes.

Dear Charles,

Thank you for contacting me about prohibiting the sale of water from our Great Lakes. I appreciate that you have taken the time to communicate your views and concerns with me.

I understand your concern about removing water from our Great Lakes, which is already threatened by low water levels. As you may know, the eight Great Lakes states entered the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact in 2008. The Compact contains a provision that bans taking water out of the Great Lakes basin in containers greater than 5.7 gallons, but individual states can decide whether to ban putting water in smaller containers such as bottles. Should the issue of selling water from the Great Lakes or similar legislation comes before me in the U.S. Senate, I will keep your views in mind.

Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.
