A new report on the quality of the Great Lakes is due out this week
(Tuesday, July 25th).
The Great Lakes Radio Consortium’s Lester Graham reports, it’s a
comprehensive review of progress toward cleaning up the lakes.
This report is issued every two years by the International Joint
The IJC monitors what kind of progress the US and Canadian
are making toward meeting the Great Lakes water quality agreement
the two nations. Frank Bevaqua is a spokesperson for the IJC.
“The Commission has chosen to focus on the number of the
particular annexes to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and to look at
progress in these specific areas.”
In its last report two years ago, the IJC admonished the governments
Canada and the US, telling them to get more serious about improving the
quality of the Great Lakes water. The new report should show how well
they’ve done that. It’ll be available at the commission’s website… at ijc.org.
For the Great Lakes Radio Consortium, I’m Lester Graham.
