Government Programs Combating Toxic Pollution
Threat: Toxic contamination such as PCB’s, mercury and heavy metals in Great Lakes harbors and rivers that are responsible for drinking water restrictions, beach closures, and fish consumption advisories.
Government Programs addressing threat:
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
U.S. Department of State
Over the last eight years, federal investments to restore the Great Lakes have been producing results—but serious threats remain. Cutting federal funding now will only make projects more difficult and expensive the longer we wait.
