Title: Environmental management strategy for the Great Lakes system
Author: International Reference Group on Great Lakes Pollution from Land Use Activities (PLUARG)
Abstract: In November 1972, the International Joint Commission appointed an International Reference Group on Great Lakes Pollution from Land Use Activities (PLUARG), composed of nine Canadian and nine United States representatives, to conduct the study under the Great Lakes Water Quality Board. The purpose of this study was: (a) to determine and evaluate the causes, extent and locality of pollution from land use activities, (b) to gain an understanding of the relative importance of various land uses in terms of their diffuse pollutant loads to the Great Lakes, (c) to examine the effects of the diffuse pollutant loads on Great Lakes water quality, and (d) to determine the most practicable remedial measures for decreasing the diffuse pollutant loads to an acceptable level and the estimated costs of these measures. This final report provides a summary of the findings and conclusions of the PLUARG study, including the Reference Group's recommendations.
