View the Water Infrastructure Priorities for the Great Lakes Region | Published March 2017
The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) released a set of comprehensive recommendations for investing in water infrastructure across the Great Lakes region. The GLC called on the President, Congress and Canada to implement a large-scale initiative to rebuild and modernize the infrastructure that provides our region with safe drinking water, treats wastewater, manages stormwater, facilitates commercial navigation, and safeguards the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River as environmental and economic assets. Sustained and strategic investments will help rebuild our cities, protect public health, support business growth, sustain agriculture and fuel the economy of our industrial heartland.
