A brochure focusing on Lake Huron issues is available from the Department of Environmental Quality's Office of the Great Lakes.

The Lake Huron Update is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes National Program Office.

"This brochure represents a summary of priority issues that the Lake Huron basin is facing and also lists management actions suggested by the Lake Huron Initiative Action Plan that are currently funded or ongoing," said G. Tracy Mehan, director of the Office of the Great Lakes.

The brochure provides a vibrant display of graphics of the Lake Huron basin while targeting important subjects such as habitat degradation, critical pollutants and harmful exotic species. It also includes a detailed map of the Areas of Concern within the Lake Huron Drainage Basin, as well as interesting facts about the lake.

The new brochure is just one of the Lake Huron Initiative efforts to focus on the key issues of critical pollutants/use impairments, and fish and wildlife habitat and biodiversity.

The Lake Huron Initiative was established by representatives of the Office of the Great Lakes, along with state, provincial, federal and local agencies, and interest groups. In just over one year, the effort resulted in the development of the Lake Huron Initiative Action Plan to address concerns within the basin.

Copies of the brochure are available at no cost by writing to the DEQ Office of the Great Lakes at P.O. Box 30473, Lansing, MI 48909; or by fax at (517) 335-4053. The brochure can be downloaded from the Internet at http://www.deq.state.mi.us/ogl/Huron/lhibrochure.pdf.
