Ohio outlines actions to reduce phosphorus in Lake Erie.
In 2007, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency convene the Ohio Lake Erie Phosphorus Task Force to identify and evaluate potential point and nonpoint sources of phosphorus to Ohio tributaries; determine what practices may have changed since 1995 that could increase dissolved reactive phosphorus (DRP) loads; examine various aspects of agriculture that might influence the increase in DRP loads; review the possible/probable relationships of the increased DRP loads to the eutrophication problems that have returned to Lake Erie (particularly the western basin); consider the impacts of zebra a
The Ohio Lake Erie Phosphorus Task Force Phase II effort built on the work of the 2010 Phase I report by incorporating newly available information and including more stakeholders with additional areas of expertise. The purpose of Phosphorus Task Force Phase II is to 1) develop reduction targets for total and dissolved reactive phosphorus that can be used to track future progress, and 2) develop policy and management recommendations based upon new and emerging data and information.

The Lake Erie Lakewide Management Plan (LaMP) is a binational action plan for restoring and protecting the Lake Erie ecosystem. The Lake Erie Partnership develops and implements the LAMP. U.S. EPA and Environment Canada lead the Partnership. This plan facilitates information sharing, sets priorities, and helps coordinate binational environmental protection and restoration activities.
