Water Withdrawal & Use Policy


Interbasin Transfer of Water: Michigan Trout Unlimited is opposed to the bulk transport of water from the Great Lakes Basin to locations outside the basin. Michigan TU opposes any withdrawal or diversion of ground or surface water that will adversely impact the flow or temperature regime of any coldwater lake or stream in Michigan.

Water Withdrawal: Michigan Trout Unlimited supports the ongoing review  and modification of Michigan's statutory regime for the regulation of water withdrawals to insure the continued protection and improvement of coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
