The United States and Canada adopted phosphorus load reduction targets to combat Lake Erie algal blooms.
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.
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.
The Fund for Lake Michigan's grant making is focused on projects in southeastern Wisconsin that will:
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are focusing on restoring natural water flow and ecological processes between coastal wetlands in the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (Ohio) and adjacent to Lake Erie to improve fish and wildlife habitat. Thus far, this pilot project has resulted in a model that can be used to estimate total phosphorus and total sediment loads to a reconnected wetland using high frequency turbidity and discharge measurements.
