U.S. EPA and Environment Canada to hold Public Engagement Webinars on the Health of the Great Lakes

In early September the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Environment Canada will be hosting five webinars aimed at engaging people around the five Great Lakes. This public engagement is taking place thanks to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, which was originally signed in 1972 and revised most recently in 2012. The agreement is a commitment between the U.S. and Canada to restore and protect the Great Lakes and set priorities to do this. If you live in the Great Lakes basin and have an opinion about the threats to the Great Lakes and actions needed to protect them, please consider joining one of these webinars.

 

In each webinar, Chris Korleski (U.S. EPA) and John Marsden (Environment Canada) will provide an overview of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, provide an update on public engagement relative to management plans for each of the Great Lakes, and then open the floor for discussion.

 

The dates and times of the webinars are listed below. When we have more information about how to join the webinar, we will share it with you all.
