Urbanization and rural
development are placing pressure on western Lake Superior streams
and nearshore zones. LakeSuperiorStreams uses web-based delivery and
interactive animations of real-time stream data to address
sustainability issues in western Superior watersheds. It
incorporates interpretive information, curricula, and a site design
toolkit to educate contractors/consultants, developers/realtors,
students/teachers, homeowners, agencies and decision-makers. A
Regional Stormwater Protection Team (22 organizations) was created
that collaborates to deliver common educational messages, workshops,
tools and approaches to this audience.

water users to report their use to the state.
