What's New
EDITORIAL: Proceed with Plan 2014: Proposal can sensibly regulate waterways, mitigate flooding
Watertown Daily Times (9/23)
The International Joint Commission has urged the U.S. and Canadian governments to adopt its Plan 2014. This would make these waterways healthier and prepare for climate change by regulating the extreme high and low water levels and follow their natural, seasonal flows.

Lake Ontario south shore lawmakers urge John Kerry to block Plan 2014
Watertown Daily Times (9/22)
Set to replace a half-century-old water regulation plan, the U.S.-Canadian International Joint Commission’s “Plan 2014” proposal has drawn criticism from eastern and southern lakeshore communities because of increased risks of flooding and coastal property damage.

Money-losing Cleveland-Europe Express will sail more often
The Plain Dealer (9/17)
Despite steeper than expected financial losses on its freighter to Europe, the Port of Cleveland will double down on the Cleveland-Europe Express.

St. Lawrence Seaway shipping outpaces 2013
Wisconsin Public Radio (9/17)
Ocean-going ships through the St. Lawrence Seaway have more than made up for the ice-locked start of this year’s shipping season, and in spite of rain delays are now ahead of last year’s overall pace.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (9/16)
While Green Bay holds a mere 1.4% of Lake Michigan's water, it receives one-third of the lake's nutrient load — due largely to the farm fields that drip phosphorus-rich manure into the streams, creeks and rivers that flow toward the bay.

EDITORIAL: UWM and Milwaukee invest in water research
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (9/16)
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee long has studied Lake Michigan, but the unveiling of its impressive new campus at the base of Greenfield Ave., coupled with the opening a year ago of the Global Water Center a mile up the river puts in place an infrastructure for a new community identity.
