People moving away and giving up the fight is helping the international activists gain strength.
Where ever there's an abundance of water or a scarcity of water its a steady fight. A small town near me is suing residents who refuse to destroy (destroy not cap) their wells after installing a municipal water system. At the state level, various bills keep being introduced that require that private wells and septic systems be inspected every 10 years. Such an inspection would shut me down immediately since my well and drinfield are both within 100 feet of the lake.
Interestingly enough, a map of the great lakes watershed mimics a map of a vast bio reserve on a UN wishlist I saw some years ago.

My memory of the target Great Lakes watershed map extends west to Lake Champlain region on the Ontario westerly border.
BTW, the Chicago region not being within the watershed map is courtesy of two diversion canals with a series of seven dams with navagation locks. Battle lines are being drawn concerning the closure of Illinois Waterway System navagation locks. Proposed means to prevent an invasive species, Asian Carp, from entering the Great Lakes.
Ah, the unintended consequences of doing too good of a job during clean up of Chicago’s toilet flushes.
