SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement of 1972,
as amended in 1987, federal, state and tribal partners have drafted a
new Great Lakes Strategy (The Strategy). The Strategy is a concise,
high-level statement of basin wide priorities and activities,
reflecting the current state of the Great Lakes basin ecosystem and key
environmental goals for the future, so that a unified approach to
implementation can be carried out by a diverse set of federal, state,
and tribal agencies.
     The Strategy presents Great Lakes basin issues under four broad
categories: (1) Chemical Integrity: Reducing and Eliminating the Threat
of Toxic Pollution and Excess Nutrients, (2) Physical Integrity:
Improving Land Use, Water Quantity Management, and Habitat Protection,
(3) Biological Integrity: Protecting Human Health and the Ecosystem's
Species, and (4) Working Together: Effectively Coordinating Programs
and Resources to Ensure The Great Lakes are Protected and Restored.

June 1, 2001.
