Northeast Indiana is a source of nutrient pollution to the Western Lake Erie Basin. Under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, Indiana wrote a Domestic Action Plan for reducing phosphorus heading to Lake Erie in the Maumee River. HEC followed the drafting of the plan closely and submitted comments during the public comment period. We are now tracking the plan’s implementation.
There are steps all citizens can take to reduce nutrient pollution. Find out what you can do through our partnership in the Clear Choices Clean Water Program.
