Office of the Great Lakes to Hold Annex 2001 Public Meetings

The Department of Environmental Qualitys Office of the Great Lakes will
be holding a series of public meetings to discuss the draft Annex 2001
Implementing Agreements. These meetings will be held throughout the
state to provide the public with the opportunity to ask questions and
engage in discussion on the draft documents. The draft Annex 2001
Implementing Agreements are the result of three years of efforts by the
Council of Great Lakes Governors Water Management Working Group to
address Great Lakes Basin protection issues, including the diversion of
water outside of the Basin and water uses within the Basin. The
documents are draft, and have not been endorsed by any Governor at this
time.

All members of the public are invited to attend the following public
meetings:
