Letting Waukesha get around the rules and take Lake Michigan water would be a precedent that could threaten our precious freshwater resource

There is more water in Lake Michigan this summer than it has had in years, but that is no reason for the signers of the Great Lakes Compact to lower their guard and let Waukesha take some of it.     

    High lake levels really don’t have any bearing on the decision about whether to let Waukesha pump water out of the Great Lakes watershed, but they surely get the attention of regions of the country that are affected by drought-depleted water supplies.

    The fear that the Great Lakes freshwater resource would be raided by states going dry from climate change and reckless development was a factor in the signing of the Great Lakes Compact by the eight states touching the lakes and its enactment as a federal law in 2008.

    The compact forbids taking lake water out of the Great Lakes basin unless it is approved by the governors of all eight states. In the first request to divert lake water since the compact was signed, Waukesha is asking for that approval. It should be denied.

    Waukesha does have a water problem, one that is largely self-inflicted. Rampant development drew down the aquifers serving its municipal water wells and some are now contaminated with radon gas. Advanced water treatment technology used successfully by a number of Wisconsin communities reportedly would relieve the problem, but Waukesha officials prefer the Lake Michigan option and are proposing to pump 10.1 million gallons from the lake every day.

    The problem with taking water by cities like Waukesha, which are located outside of the Great Lakes drainage area, is that the wastewater does not flow back to the lakes, as required by the compact.

    Waukesha proposes to pump most of the treated wastewater it would generate from a lake diversion a considerable distance into a river that flows into Lake Michigan. But that doesn’t overcome the fundamental reason the Waukesha application should be rejected: Approving a diversion outside of the lakes watershed would be a precedent that could threaten the lakes as areas of the continent get progressively drier.

    The possibility should be taken seriously. Recall what Bill Richardson, the governor of New Mexico and a presidential candidate, said in 2007: “States like Wisconsin are awash in water” and should share it with other states.

    Representatives of water-challenged states seem to have prevailed in the 1980s when Congress directed the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of sending Great Lakes water to dry parts of the country, though nothing came of it.

    The director of the Northland College water research center in Ashland was recently quoted by the New York Times as asking, “If you could send water from the Great Lakes to Asia, where can’t you send it?”

    He was referring to the infamous attempt in 1998 by a Canadian company to send tanker ships full of Lake Superior water to Asia, which had been approved by Canadian authorities and was abandoned only after a furious public outcry.

    The Great Lakes Compact is the closest thing the Great Lakes have to a dike protecting their precious freshwater resource. Letting Waukesha take water would be like drilling a hole in the dike. It would be a small leak, but one sure to get bigger as the Waukesha precedent is exploited.

Chair factory redux PDF Print E-mail

A proposal for commercial development of public lakefront land recalls the era when Port Washington lake views were blocked by the brick walls of factory buildings

Views of the water were blocked by ramparts of brick and mortar. At the north end of the harbor, the massive presence of a Wisconsin Chair Co. building made the harbor invisible to anyone walking or driving on
Washington Street or living in the nearby neighborhood.

    Those were the opening words of an Ozaukee Press editorial published on November 6, 2014, about the time the first murmurings of a city plan to sell public lakefront land for private development were heard.
The editorial described the Port Washington harbor area as it looked before the chair factory buildings were razed in the 1950s.

    Next week the Common Council will consider a project that, in an eerily accurate rendition of deja vu, calls for construction of a building on that same site that will block the harbor views that were revealed when
the chair factory was torn down. The new building would have a two-story brick facade facing Washington Street and is designed to recall the look of the chair factory manufacturing plant.

    The council is expected to approve the project on Tuesday even though the proposal has been in city hands for less than three weeks. Hasty approval is not what this proposal needs, for it will only increase the
likelihood that elected officials will make a mistake that will haunt the city for generations.

    The move to transfer to a private developer land owned by the public between the north slip marina and Washington Street is fraught with consequences that cry for thoughtful, unhurried evaluation. For one, the
proposed building would block lake views that might never be restored.

    Further, even a city government that has appeared hell-bent to sell the harbor land should view the paucity of proposals for the site as a red flag warning of doubts about the property’s commercial potential. After
enthusiastic talk about attracting a brewpub or “destination shopping experience,” the city publicized and widely distributed requests for proposals—and received just one.

    The single proposal it attracted, for a Paramount blues-themed building called the Blues Factory, is incomplete. The city’s RFP (request for proposal) attracted what more accurately could be called a PIP (proposal
in progress).    

    The city asked for proposals to acquire the land, which has an appraised value of $575,000, but the Blues Factory response contains no mention of a purchase price. The proposal calls for a building with a
restaurant, but would likely be built with the restaurant space vacant. Financing for the project, which relies in part on so-called crowdfunding via Internet solicitation, is apparently uncertain enough that it is
dependent on a $1 million taxpayer subsidy.

    Even more than the uncertainty over the viability of the proposal, public angst over the loss of visual and physical lake access is a compelling reason to put on the brakes. In large numbers, citizens have said they
don’t want the lake views and open lakefront space that define the city, attract visitors and please residents compromised by a commercial building.

    As for that building, it is unfortunate that developer Christopher Long’s Blues Factory concept is now enveloped in what is becoming an increasingly strident controversy, for aside from its unacceptable location
Long’s vision of an enterprise that would celebrate Port Washington’s role in the growth of America’s indigenous blues music in the early 1900s as the home of the Paramount Records division of the Wisconsin Chair
Co. has much to admire. The museum, performance hall and banquet facility he envisions, freed from the negative baggage of compromising natural lakefront aesthetics, would be a boon to the city. City officials
and private property owners should be working to help find an appropriate site to take advantage of this opportunity.

    That 2014 editorial continued:

    Progress came and in an era of remarkably enlightened land use the buildings were cleared away and the north slip was remade into a heart-of-the-city marina embraced by walkways, a park and open space that
ensure the satisfying water views that are now Port Washington’s signature.

    Yes, that was progress.

    Blocking lake views once again with an insensitively placed building would be something else.

    In the minds of many of the citizens who love this beautiful lakeshore city, it would be a foolish step backwards.

Bacteria at the beach PDF Print E-mail

Everyone knows what’s causing the lake at Belgium beaches to be unfit for swimming—the mystery is why it’s tolerated

On some days, Lake Michigan water along Belgium beaches, including those of Harrington Beach State Park, is so full of E. coli and other bacteria that it is a menace to human health. Accidental ingestion of even a small quantity of it could cause a dangerous infection.  

    Ozaukee County Public Health Director Kirsten Johnson put it like this: “I wouldn’t swim in that water.”

    Many people do swim in it, of course. An estimated 175,000 people visit the park’s beaches every year. The private beaches adjacent to the park are also popular with swimmers and boaters.

    This health threat is not breaking news. Its presence has been known for years—a 2013 national study singled out the Belgium shoreline as a major contributor to Wisconsin’s standing as having the second worst water quality in the nation along its beaches. And its source is common knowledge—manure runoff from farm fields abetted by human waste from illegal septic systems.

    The only mystery about this health menace is why it is tolerated.

    The Ozaukee County Land and Water Management Department has been working on the problem for years, but with limited enforcement powers it has had to rely mainly on education and voluntary compliance.

    That the results have been disappointing was underlined by a recent report by the county health director to the Belgium Town Board indicating that as little as half an inch of rain can cause dangerously high E. coli levels.

    Last year the county used a $20,000 grant to hire an engineering firm to design a stormwater remediation system to stem the flow of polluted runoff into the lake. The results so far have been a study by the engineers that confirms the severity of the problem and a suggestion of installing gravel dams in ditches.

    Band-aids like that can probably help, but the only sure way to keep E. coli-rich runoff out of the lake is to stop it at its source.  

    Some homeowners who have private septic systems were probably surprised to see “failing septic systems” mentioned as one of the sources in the engineering study reported on in last week’s Ozaukee Press. Septic systems, after all, are tightly regulated by the county and homeowners are required to have them tested every three years.

    Andy Holschbach, director of the Land and Water Management Department, explains that some septic systems in rural Belgium, though they pass inspection as functioning systems, may be connected to farm-field drainage tiles. As evidence, he points out that several years ago septic tanks for a restaurant, tavern and several homes in Lake Church were found to be connected to tiles that drained into Sucker Brook.

    Still, dairy cows vastly outnumber humans in the two watersheds that drain into the lake at Belgium beaches, and until the handling of their prodigious output of waste is improved, water at Belgium beaches will often be unfit to swim in.

    There are proven ways to mitigate manure runoff, including manure management plans based on best practices, tilling methods that lessen runoff, avoidance of reckless manure handling such as spreading it on frozen slopes in winter and the creation of buffer zones of runoff-inhibiting vegetation at edges of fields.

    Holschbach has been advocating these remedies to farmers for a long time. Some have responded; some, as the dismal state of Lake Michigan water quality off Belgium shores attests, have not.

    Counties need help in dealing with farm pollution. It’s not just a problem in the Town of Belgium. It’s a problem throughout the state. Water quality—dead zones in Green Bay, lakes and rivers clogged by algae energized by nutrients from farm fields, threatened drinking water, polluted beaches—needs stronger regulatory and enforcement protection from the state.

    Recent sessions of the Legislature have limited the Department of Natural Resources role in environmental protection. That’s the wrong direction to go.

    Every state legislator should be embarrassed that swimming in beautiful Lake Michigan at beautiful Harrington Beach State Park can be dangerous to your health.
