Title: Canadian Sub - Group 9 pollution from agricultural, forestry and conservation sources
Author: Canada - United States Joint Working Group on Pollution of the Great Lakes
Abstract: In June of 1970, a Canada - U.S. Ministerial meeting was held in Ottawa to review what could be done by the two Federal Governments to formalize joint programs of pollution abatement for the Great Lakes. Recognising that agriculture and related activities have been sighted as contributing to the pollution of the Great Lake Waterways, one sub-group (Sub-Group #9) was set up to consider pollution of the Great Lakes from Agricultural, Forestry and Conservation Sources. An examination of land use sources of pollution was conducted in order to identify the severity of pollution arising therefrom in order to define and assess research and development efforts for the purpose of developing feasible control techniques and practices which may then be incorporated in future advisory, planning and regulatory activities.
