Domestic Action Plans contain the overarching strategies (often referred to as activities or tactics) for meeting the 40% phosphorus reduction goal for the western and central Lake Erie basins. Domestic Action Plans arose from commitments made by the U.S. and Canada under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.
