sheets on regional water policy
The amount of fresh water contained in the
Great Lakes could submerge the continental United States beneath
nearly 10 feet of water. But is that enough to meet the regionís
future needs? To show how and why leaders must act immediately to
develop an effective plan, a coalition of citizens' groups has
produced a special report, which offers solutions, and calls on
Great Lakes leaders in the United States and Canada to take a
leadership role by modernizing regional water policy.

Effects of Great Lakes Contaminants on Human Health|
In accordance with the Great Lakes Critical Programs
Act of 1990, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
(ATSDR) has developed a research program to address human health
effects from exposure to contaminants in the Great Lakes. This
initial report summarizes existing literature on Great Lakes human
health studies related to contaminants. Research conducted by this
program is contributing to a basinwide analysis on pollution
problems in the Great Lakes.
