Waukesha will return the same volume of water to the lakes via a tributary. Discharging to rivers is the norm in WI and other Great Lakes states. 94% of municipalities discharge to rivers in WI. The only thing unusual is that Waukesha's high quality of wastewater treatment is matched by only a handful of communities in WI. For more info, see www.GreatWaterAlliance.com.
