A number of states have been trying for years to do a grab of Great Lakes water. Now it appears, after twenty five years, that an agreement may be in the works to ban export of the water out of the region.
But some aren’t sure. Because such an agreement might then imply that water is a commodity to be sold rather than something in the public trust. And while the agreement might ban water being exported in bulk, it apparently exempts water in plastic bottles. Hmmm.
