The Importance of GROUND WATER in the Great Lakes Region
http://water.usgs.gov/ogw/pubs/WRI004008/
Ground water is a major natural resource in the Great Lakes region 
because it indirectly contributes more than 50 percent of the stream 
discharge to the Great Lakes. This report is an excellent evaluation of 
ground water conditions and issues in the region, illustrated with 
numerous figures and maps.

Lake Huron GIS
http://www.glfc.org/LakeHuronGis/
To facilitate a holistic approach to managing the Lake Huron basin, 
members of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission's Lake Huron Technical 
Committee have collaborated to design and develop a GIS-based decision 
support system. Maps currently available include barriers to fish 
passages, historic Michigan treaty boundaries, Lake Trout refuges, 
population centers, rivers and streams, and Canadian management areas.
