Protecting the Great Lakes

This article is about protecting the Great Lakes from diversion to other states and countries. It is more complicated that it sounds because several of the states that border on one of the lakes also have a substantial part of the state's land in other water basins. Some Canadian provinces have also been working of similar legislation.

What really caught my attention is the phrase "death by a thousand straws." At last, government is being proactive on an environmental issue.
