Past Projects

Erie P Market

From 2016 to 2018, the Great Lakes Commission developed and piloted the Erie P Market to address the excessive runoff of pollution from agricultural land that contributes to the formation of algal blooms and dead zones in the Great Lakes. The project was designed to test water quality trading and stewardship crediting as nutrient reduction tools capable of crossing state and provincial boundaries in the Western Lake Erie Basin.  Click here to learn more about Erie P Market.

Fox P Trade

From 2013 to 2016, in partnership with the Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Great Lakes Commission developed and piloted the Fox P Trade program with funding from a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant. This project was designed to alleviate high nutrient levels and algal blooms in Wisconsin’s Lower Fox River Watershed by establishing a water quality trading market.  Click here to learn more about Fox P Trade.
