Attitudes of Decision Makers in the Great Lake States Regarding Large-Scale Diversions

by Helen A. Brohl, St. Lawrence Seaway Development, Corp, Washington, DC, USA,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85

Abstract: The issue of diversion has motivated leaders in the Great Lake states to hold conferences, sign resolutions, and create a task force to discuss the ways in which the region can prohibit or regulate the transfer of water from the Great Lakes to southwestern and High Plains states where water shortages are common. The attitudes regarding methods to address the issue were different enough on an individual or legislator basis that they should be noted when acting on regional agreements to mitigate the possibility of diversion.
