    Interesting.

    Link, please?

    My understanding is that Governor Granholm negotiated an agreement by all states and provinces bordering the Great Lakes ... that water may NOT be removed from the Great Lakes for other river systems, i.e., Mississippi River, Colorado River, and California rivers.

    I could be wrong about this, which is why I ask for the link.

         And it is an international agreement between Great Lake states and The province of Ontario. The agreement is supposed to somewhat control water usage and diversion in the water basin. There is no connection that I know of between the Missouri river and the Great Lakes. However, the Chicago river does provide a connection to the Mississippi River through other tributaries. That has connection has been around for about a century.
