The 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement includes a commitment to publish a report on relevant and available groundwater science.  In response to this commitment, a draft report has been completed that documents groundwater science relevant to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. The draft report is a product of extensive collaboration among experts in a variety of subject areas and summarizes current knowledge on groundwater in the Great Lakes region.

Canada and the United States are seeking comments on the draft report:
