    That isn't even the government per se. That is all contracted out. Ironically there are places in Wisconsin where you can drink water out of a lake and it will be safe and will taste like bottled water. I suppose the UP in "Michigan" you can drink straight out of the lake(s).

    You're focused on blaming Obama, who had nothing to do with the problem. That's why you're dishonestly pretending that you think this should be his concern
    Yup - one of the causes is farmer's fertilizer and chemical runoff from crops.

    So your position is that the infrastructure was in perfect shape in 2008?

    There is the basic problem though that since this is Lake Erie water, the chances that some of the runoff comes from Canada are pretty good.

    I had no idea Canada gets a monopoly on water. IMO,we have done too much for the Canadians.

    None of the runoff comes from Canada? I'll have to check my maps, but last time I looked, the whole far shore of Lake Erie was Canada.

    How foolish.

    It's not the water, it's the chemicals applied to the crops that leech into the soil.
