This 2018 presentation summarizes the GLWA’s work toward converting soluble Phosphorus to particulate Phosphorus during the treatment process using both chemical and biological techniques.
Through this plan, the City of Toledo collaborates with other local, state and federal agencies to respond to and mitigate any hazardous materials incidents that occur in the city. The plan describes the strategy for a coordinated response to a discharge or substantial threat of discharge of oil, a release of a hazardous substance from a vessel, offshore facility, or onshore facility operating within the boundaries of the coastal and inland area of Western Lake Erie.
MAEP is a voluntary verification program that helps farmers reduce environmental impacts from their operations by providing technical assistance for the design and implementation of conservation plans. The Overview describes several other indicators of success that speak to water quality outcomes and farmer engagement including participation in training events and tons of sediment and phosphorus loading reduced.
This interactive map viewer identifies potential causes of impairment and pollutant sources that need to be controlled to achieve desired phosphorous load reductions and reduce the Harmful Algal Blooms in the Western Lake Erie Basin.
The United States Department of Agriculture - Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) developed this computer-generated model to estimate the nutrient loads coming from sub-basins in areas with insufficient water quality monitoring data. The model has been run in areas like the Lower Maumee where there is enough water quality monitoring data to calibrate the program.
This strategy brings together diverse nutrient management activities for point sources and nonpoint sources across the state. It documents the progress of ongoing activities implemented by federal, state, or local agencies and identifies outstanding needs.
Québec’s source water protection efforts are advanced under the guidance of this policy document. It incorporates lessons learned since the passing of the 2002 Water Policy and was created with input from 140 water sector organizations and hundreds of public comments. The strategy will be implemented through three successive action plans, with the first plan outlining proposed source water protection activities from 2018 to 2023.
The Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI): Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) program, run by NOAA's Climate Program Office, addresses the needs of decision-makers dealing with pressing climate-related issues in coastal and marine environments. The program is designed to fund interdisciplinary teams of researchers in the development and transition of climate-related research and information to advance decision-making in coastal communities and coastal and marine ecosystems.
The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) funds research projects related to the use, development, and conservation of Lake Michigan coastal resources in Illinois and Indiana.
