Title: Third annual report 1974 on Great Lakes water quality
Author: International Joint Commission, United States and Canada
Abstract: It is now more than three years since the Governments of Canada and the United States signed the 1972 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and thereby agreed to develop and implement programs and other measures deemed necessary to restore and enhance the water quality in the Great Lakes System. The International Joint Commission was directed to assist the Governments in implementing the Agreement and was assigned certain powers, responsibilities, and functions. This, then, is the third annual report by the Commission concerning the progress toward meeting the goals of the Agreement. It covers the calendar year 1974, takes account of developments of the early months of 1975, and draws upon a much more substantial and sophisticated technical base than the previous two reports. The committee system of the Great Lakes Water Quality Board and Research Advisory Board - the Commission's principal advisers - has matured. In the process, the members have developed a clearer sense of direction with respect to the specific programs necessary and a greater sensitivity to the totality of efforts being made to clean up the Great Lakes.
