Title: Pollution in the Great Lakes Basin from land use activities - Summary
Author: International Joint Commission
Abstract: The Governments of Canada and the United States requested, in a Reference dated April 1972, that the International Joint Commission study and make recommendations on the extent and cause of pollution from land use activities, and on possible remedies. The 'Pollution in the Great Lakes Basin from land use activities (1980) report was written in response to that request. The basic questions asked by the Governments were: are the boundary waters of the Great Lakes System being polluted by land drainage from land use activities? If such pollution is occurring, by what causes, to what extent, and where is the pollution taking place? What remedial measures would be most practicable to deal with such pollution, and what would be their probable cost? The Commission was also asked to assess the adequacy of existing programs and control measures for addressing nonpoint pollution. This document includes only the Executive Summary of the report.
