Why should we work towards a Great Lakes Commons and how ?
from the web link below:

Milwaukee is located on Lake Michigan, just 100 miles along the shoreline from Whiting, Illinois. This year, the BP refinery in Whiting will begin refining more tar sands bitumen from Alberta. About 10 percent of its capacity (about 405,000 barrels a day) now comes from the tar sands. It is fed by the Enbridge pipeline that burst in July 2010 and spilled more than 23,000 barrels of crude oil - with the spill site including Talmadge Creek and a 48-kilometre length of the Kalamazoo River which connects to Lake Michigan. The refinery has its wastewaster treatment plant in Chicago, Illinois, also on Lake Michigan.
