Meeting Binational Goals: Improving the Management of Nutrients in the Region
The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Legislative Caucus is hosting a series of virtual meetings in September and October 2020. Meeting Binational Goals: Improving the Management of Nutrients in the Region will be held September 21, 2020.
The GLLC first turned its attention to the problem of nutrient pollution in 2019 with the inaugural Patricia Birkholz Institute for Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Policy. The Caucus’s Task Force on Nutrient Management leads the organization’s efforts to reduce the incidence of polluted runoff that carries excess nutrients into the Great Lakes and other waterbodies. The task force will report on its progress to date during this session. Also featured will be a presentation on the binational progress that Canada and the U.S. are making to achieve the goals for nutrients established under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.
