From Waukesha to Foxconn, and the massive water diversion in Chicago, Great Lakes water tensions continue to make news across the region. Throughout history, Lake Superior has often been on the frontline in the Great Lakes water diversion debate, including the highly controversial Nova proposal of 1998, which planned to use ocean-going tankers to ship 158 million gallons of Lake Superior water to Asia every year. Last Fall, Annin published a major revision of his award-winning book, The Great Lakes Water Wars. His talk will help cut through the confusion surrounding the Great Lakes water diversion debate and help put Great Lakes water tensions in a regional, continental, and global context.
