Key actions under this strategy include:

  •  Engage stakeholders on local and regional scales to increase the understanding of water quality condition and management challenges, nearshore and beach health, and best management practices and policies.

Successful implementation of domestic action plans requires broad support, coordination, and collaboration among agencies, academia, local government, private industry, and citizens. All source and sector groups have a role to play in contributing to our success.

A public update is provided annually via webinar by the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement Annex 4 members. They share progress, new information, and opportunities for continued progress. A recording of the 2019 webinar is provided below.
