We are happy to announce that, in keeping with the 2012 Canada-United States Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, a draft 2017 Lake Huron Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP) has been prepared, and is currently available for review and comment. We would like to hear your views on Lake Huron’s health, the key environmental issues within your region of the watershed, and the proposed priorities and actions that are intended to restore and maintain its waters for future generations.
The 2017 Lake Huron LAMP is a five-year binational strategy for maintaining and restoring the water quality of Lake Huron and the St. Marys River. The LAMP identifies key priorities, and guides the coordination of binational environmental protection and restoration activities aimed at preserving and protecting the health of Lake Huron’s waters.
The draft LAMP reflects a science-based and shared understanding by members of the Lake Huron Partnership which is made up of Canadian and United States government agencies, and led by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
One of the underlying principles embodied in the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, is that we will work in cooperation with State and Provincial Governments, First Nations, Métis, Tribal Governments, Municipal Governments, watershed management and local public agencies, and the public, to successfully meet the commitments under the Agreement. By making this draft document available for broad review and comment you can help ensure that priority issues are identified in the Lake Huron LAMP.
To that end, we ask that you provide your input to Liz LaPlante ([email protected]) and/or Steve Clement ([email protected]) by September 5, 2017. We will review and consider any input submitted before finalizing and implementing the 2017 Lake Huron LAMP.
