Senate plan would hurt Michigan rivers, critics say
"A plan before the state Senate would let farms, factories and others pull enough water from some rivers and streams to reduce their flow rates significantly, environmentalists said Tuesday.

The legislation's chief sponsor said its critics were exaggerating.

The plan is contained in a package of bills that would give Michigan's approval to a regional compact to prevent Great Lakes water from being sent to water-poor regions. All eight states adjoining the lakes must ratify the compact for it to take effect."
