Doyle Opposes Diverting Water From Great Lakes

Wisconsin Gov. Doyle says he'll consider allowing Lake Michigan water to be shipped beyond the Great Lakes basin to Waukesha County.

However, Doyle opposes going beyond that and diverting Great Lakes water to Western states.

Doyle becomes chairman of the Council of Great Lakes Governors in July. Taking water from the Great Lakes is governed by law. But the eight governors on the council have veto power over any diversion of water outside the Great Lakes basin.

The council is expected to consider new rules covering limited use of water outside the Great Lakes basin.
