Mending the Meander with the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

IJC | 2014-08-25

“He felt a reaction against deep wading with the water deepening up under his armpits, to hook big trout in places impossible to land them.” – Ernest Hemingway, “Big Two-Hearted River.” It may be that Hemingway was really writing about the Upper Peninsula's Fox River running through Seney, Michigan, but it almost doesn't matter. A six-year effort has now been completed—using funds from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and other sources—to re-connect 35 miles of the Two Hearted River. As a result, this waterway is now one of the longest free-flowing rivers in the Great Lakes.   - See more at: http://www.ijc.org/en_/blog/2014/08/13/mending_meander_great_lakes_restoration_initiative_davis/#sthash.TmCOtnup.dpuf

Infographics: Effect of Northern Ohio's Cropland and Land Use on Maumee River and Lake Erie

Circle of Blue | 2014-07-16

Toxic algal blooms are now ubiquitous in lakes and oceans around the world, risking human health and sucking up so much oxygen they suffocate fish and other animals. Dangerous blooms have been documented from the Gulf of Mexico to the Baltic Sea. In North America's Great Lakes, algal blooms have emerged as the most unhealthy, unsightly, and urgent water quality problem.

Reversing Harm and Balancing Interests Under Plan 2014

IJC | 2014-06-25

There are challenges to protecting the ecosystem and property along the Lake Ontario shoreline. There are tradeoffs. To restore coastal ecosystem health, you need more natural lake levels. More natural lake levels can increase damages to shoreline development. A new Plan 2014 for the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River system strikes a balance. It would update an existing regulation plan for the Moses-Saunders dam called 1958DD. The new Plan 2014 would produce a huge improvement in coastal ecosystems – helping restore some 64,000 acres of wetlands that foster aquatic life and filter polluted runoff – in return for a small reduction in benefits.   - See more at: http://www.ijc.org/en_/blog/2014/06/17/reversing_harm_balancing_interests_plan_2014/#sthash.GVE0ouXB.dpuf

Complete the survey

Great Lakes Commission | 2014-06-18

We are contacting you as a person engaged in improving water management actions to fill out a short survey that will help us know the best ways you get and would like to receive the latest information about innovative water management practices. The Great Lakes Commission is leading this three-year long Improving Water Management in the Great Lakes Basin Project to identify and test the environmental and financial implications for municipalities to pursue water conservation and green infrastructure practices, and test how this information—when combined with effective knowledge-transfer techniques—can drive innovation in water management throughout the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River region. The project is funded by the Great Lakes Protection Fund. The aim of this survey is to help us understand the most effective ways to transfer knowledge on water use, conservation, and green infrastructure issues. We think the survey results will also be of value...
