This report presents the research, findings and recommendations resulting from the project, Toward a Water Resources Management Decision Support System for the Great Lakes (WRMDSS), supported by the Great Lakes Protection Fund and authored by the Great Lakes Commission and its collaborators. The objective was to compile and synthesize information on the status of Great Lakes water resources, current uses, and ecological impacts of water withdrawals. In so doing, it lays the foundation for the development of a regional water resources management decision support system that will facilitate scientifically sound decisionmaking.
