The Great Lakes Regional Water Use Database has been around for over 20 years. Originally, it was established by the Great Lakes states and provinces in response to the recommendation of the Great Lakes Charter ofwhich calls for a uniform, consistent base of data of Great Lakes water withdrawals, diversions and consumptive uses.
Diversion and Consumptive Use." The following discussion is not a comprehensive overview of the is-sue, nor is it intended to be. Rather, it highlights: the emergence of the diversion and consumptive use issue as a lead-ing regional policy consideration;-the characteristics and impacts of existing Great Lakes diversions and consumptive uses;Cited by: 3.

The term consumptive use refers to any quantity of water that is withdrawn from the Great Lakes system and not returned. Current consumptive uses of the lakes include drinking water for humans and livestock, irrigation, and industrial uses.
Due to the large volume of water in the Great Lakes, consumptive use has only a minor effect on water levels. These diversions and consumptive uses may affect water levels on the Great Lakes and in so doing, indirectly affect the potential for hydroelectric-power production at Niagara Falls.
Water levels are also a concern for shoreline property owners, as high levels cause beach erosion and low levels raise concerns for shipping and pleasure-craft. The Council of Great Lakes Governors (CGLG) - a partnership of the governors of the eight Great Lakes states and the Canadian provincial premiers of Ontario and Quebec - was tasked with creating a new common conservation standard to manage water diversions, withdrawals, and consumptive use : Pervaze A.
Sheikh, Cynthia Brougher. In l, the IJC reported on a study of the effects of existing diversions into and out of the Great Lakes system and on consumptive uses. Until this study, consumptive use had not been considered significant for the Great Lakes because the volume of water in the system is so large.

Because less than 1% of Great Lakes’ water, on average, is renewed annually, many are concerned with potential threats to their water levels and quality, including. The Great Lakes faces an uncertain future of climate change and the impacts of regional competition for food, energy, and water.
Not surprisingly, every imaginable scheme to divert water from the Great Lakes has been contemplated, amounting to what historian Peter Annin has called “death by straws” in his book, Great Lakes Water Wars.
a man-made pipeline or canal. Diversions of Great Lakes water provide municipal supplies and support irrigation and industry in communities like Chicago, Detroit, and London, Ontario. Diversions also support shipping and recreational boating in canals in Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York, and hydroelectric power production in Size: KB.

Uses of Great Lakes water within the Great Lakes basin are steadily increasing, and critical water shortages elsewhere may add to the demands for diversions of water out of the basin in the near future.
The impacts of such diversions on fish in the Great Lakes must be considered in the context of in-basin uses of the water, because in-basin uses already adversely affect the fishery resources. The Great Lakes are the largest collection of fresh surface water on earth, and more than 40 million Americans and Canadians live in their basin.
How that water is used by, or diverted from, those people is the story of The Great Lakes Water Wars. These wars are coming/5. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook. If you need to print pages from this book, we recommend downloading it as a PDF.

The Council of Great Lakes Governors (CGLG) - a partnership of the governors of the eight Great Lakes states and the Canadian provincial premiers of Ontario and Quebec - was tasked with creating a new common conservation standard to manage water diversions, withdrawals, and consumptive use proposals.
The Great Lakes Compact is an unprecedented, multistate agreement aimed at protecting the Great Lakes from “overspending.” Under the Compact, the eight states surrounding the Great Lakes agree to adopt water-conservation plans and to abide by Compact rules for allowing and managing diversions of Great Lakes water.
"The Great Lakes Water Wars provides essential context for the region's ongoing discussions about the sustainable use of Great Lakes water resources. The book offers a thorough, informative, and insightful recounting of how the region's struggle to manage Great Lakes water resources has informed the way future uses will be reviewed and : $ While the Great Lakes Compact’s language about diversions refers specifically to areas outside the Basin, its definition of “Public Water Supply Purposes” has a more general tone.
That language refers to “water distributed to the public through a physically connected system of treatment, storage, and distribution facilities,” which. International Great Lakes Diversions and Consumptive Uses Study Board () Great Lakes Diversions and Consumptive Uses.

Diversion means transfer of water from one watershed to another. In the IJC reported on a study of the effects of existing diversions into and out of the Great Lakes system and on consumptive uses.

The Compact was entered into by the eight Great Lakes states, two Canadian provinces, and enacted into federal law.
A key aspect of the Compact is the ban on diversions of Great Lakes water outside the Great Lakes basin unless the diversion meets narrow exceptions, and the Compact requires any diversion to be primarily for residential households. When Peter Annin, director of the Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation at Northland College, was completing research for an updated version of his book The Great Lakes Water Wars, he discovered a detail about Great Lakes water diversions that had gone unnoticed for 8 years.

Under the Great Lakes Compact, people withdraw Great Lakes water with the understanding that it's staying within the Great Lakes Basin, though there are some caveats. When a municipal water utility sources the lakes for drinking water, it's discharging treated wastewater back into the lakes, or to streams and rivers that ultimately flow into them.
