Under Section 4.8 of the Compact, all new or increased Diversions outside of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are prohibited with limited exceptions. Those exceptions are for:
- Communities that straddle the basin divide
- Intra-Basin Transfers
- Communities in counties that straddle the basin divide
Depending on the type of exception sought, any Proposal for a Diversion of Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water may need to undergo review by the Regional Body and may require approval by the Compact Council.
