Racine's Water Diversion Application Signals Return of Manufacturing

January 30, 2018

Over the last 20 years, Racine has lost one quarter (nearly 7,000) of its manufacturing jobs. Due to this loss, Racine has seen a 47% decrease in its industrial water sales. In 1995 Racine sold, on average, 22.1 million gallons of water per day.  By 2015, Racine water sales had dropped to an historic low of only 13 million gallons per day.   


The City of Racine’s application for water diversion is a signal of the return of manufacturing jobs to the region.
