Lake Erie Binational Phosphorus Reduction Strategy

The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement commits Canada and the United States to prepare and issue a Binational Strategy for Phosphorus Reduction in Lake Erie. This Strategy includes:

  • An updated assessment of environmental conditions to guide nutrient management in Lake Erie;
  • A summary of the process that was used to develop the 2016 binational phosphorus reduction targets;
  • Priorities for the implementation of measures to manage phosphorus loading; and,
  • A description of how progress will be tracked.

The Strategy [PDF] (1.05 MB) was developed by the Nutrients Annex Subcommittee.
