From the Waukesha diversion to Foxconn, it’s clear that the Great Lakes water wars aren’t over. The Great Lakes Compact is a binational agreement to keep Great Lakes water in its place. But 10 years later, disputes over Great Lakes water persist.
Join us October 4th for a conversation with Peter Annin, author of The Great Lakes Water Wars, and Michael Hawthorne, investigative environmental reporter with the Chicago Tribune. We’ll discuss the new frontier of the fight over Great Lakes water and celebrate the release of the second edition of Annin’s book.
The first edition of The Great Lakes Water Wars took us through the 2008 signing of the Compact. The new edition offers new reporting on the controversies that have happened since.
