The Lake Ontario Lakewide Action and Management Plan is under review, and the public is encouraged to provide feedback on its latest update.
The plan was created under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, a partnership between Canada and the United States, which creates management plans for each of the five Great Lakes every five years on a rotating basis, according to a release. The agreement is meant to restore, maintain and protect the Great Lakes.
The Lake Ontario Partnership Working Group is requesting interested agencies, organizations and individuals to provide input on Lake Ontario issues and priorities for upcoming revisions to the plan. Those revisions will be collected and a draft plan will be made available for review and public comment sometime this year or next year.
Comments and questions may be submitted by June 20 to Mike Basile with the U.S. Environmental Protection at email@example.com.
