Judge rules in favor of Racine's bid to provide water from Lake Michigan for Foxconn. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 6/10/2019)
Foxconn’s property for a manufacturing plant that the company says will invest $10 billion and employ 13,000 workers straddles the Lake Michigan and Mississippi River basins. The compact provides for exceptions in sending water outside the basin for communities such as Mount Pleasant that straddle the divide.
And in his decision, Hayes said Racine’s request to send up to 7 million gallons of water daily, primarily to serve the Taiwan company’s needs, met requirements of the compact and state law.
