Lake Superior NOT For Sale Merchandise

Have you seen yard signs, bumper stickers, tee shirts, sweatshirts, ball caps, and winter hats with an image of Lake Superior stating "Not For Sale?"

We have been raising awareness for opposition to Kristle KLR and similar efforts of water exploitation in Northern Wisconsin. Merchandise efforts have been a fundraiser for legal funds and establishing our non-profit.

Thank you for your support!

Kristle The Bayfield County BOA Decision denying Kristle KLR’s water bottling proposal was affirmed by appeal court Judge Bittner.


The Bayfield County Board of Adjustment’s decision denying the petitioners’ conditional use permit application is affirmed because the BOA (1) kept within its jurisdiction since the concurrent exemption did not apply; (2) proceeded on a correct theory of law in its finding that the CUP application did not describe a permissible land use; (3) its action was not arbitrary, capricious, oppressive, or unreasonable because it was based on substantive concerns outlined in the zoning ordinance; and (4) the board reasonably made that determination based on the evidence presented.

Thus, the petitioners’ petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.


Background: The Town of Clover and Bayfield County Zoning unanimously said no to Kristle KLR's Conditional Use Permit request. The Bayfield County Board of Adjustment and Circuit Court have upheld the decision.
