EPA HOLDS PUBLIC MEETINGS TO DISCUSS GREAT LAKES GOALS

CHICAGO (June 6, 2001)-U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Great Lakes National Program Office will hold meetings in Illinois,
Michigan, Minnesota and New York during June and July to discuss and
listen to public comments on a proposed strategy for the Great
Lakes.  The strategy sets out basin-wide goals, and activities to
achieve them, agreed upon by federal, state, local and tribal
agencies working on Great Lakes issues.
"The problems affecting the Great Lakes are complex and no single
agency can solve them alone", said David A. Ullrich, acting Great
Lakes National Program manager. Agencies at all levels of
government will work together so that someday it will be completely
safe to swim, drink the water and eat the fish in all parts of the
Great Lakes.
Among the priorities identified in the strategy are contaminated
sediments, invasive species, loss of habitat and fish consumption
advisories.  EPA expects the strategy to become final in
September 2001 after public comments have been reviewed. The
strategy can be reviewed at http://www.epa.gov/glnpo.
The meetings will be held on the following dates:

June 25 Minnesota Pollution Control
Agency, 525 Lake Avenue South,
Suite 400, Duluth, Minn. 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

June 27 Southeast Michigan Council
of Governments, 535 Griswold
Street, Suite 300, Detroit, Mich. 3 p.m. to
8 p.m.

June 28 Niagara University,
Dunleavy Hall, Room 127, Niagara Falls, N.Y.
3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

July 2 U.S. EPA Region 5, Lake
Michigan Conference Room, 12th
floor, 77 West Jackson Blvd.,
Chicago, Ill. Noon to 5 p.m.

The Great Lakes form the largest body of fresh water in the world,
supplying drinking water to more than 30 million people.  They have
10,000 miles of shoreline extending across eight U.S. states, two
Canadian provinces and 600 beaches on the U.S. shores.
EPA's Great Lakes National Program Office was established in 1978 to
work solely on Great Lakes protection issues.
