U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environment Canada have
recently endorsed a report which outlines targets for reducing discharges of
nine critical pollutants into Lake Superior.  The targeted pollutants are
those most likely to adversely impact human or ecological health, as well as
recreational activities, such as fishing or swimming.  The report, entitled
"Protecting Lake Superior:  Lakewide Management Plan, Stage 2, Load
Reduction Targets for Critical Pollutants," was developed over the past
three years with extensive input from six jurisdictions and numerous
stakeholder groups, including U.S. tribes.  The jurisdictions include: U.S.
Government, States of Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, Government of
Canada, and Province of Ontario.  The Lake Superior Lakewide Management Plan
is part of an ongoing binational program to restore and protect Lake
Superior's ecosystem.
