Pursuant to the 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, the governments of the United Stated and Canada have published a 2020-2024 Lake Superior Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP), an ecosystem-based strategy for restoring and protecting the water quality of Lake Superior.
The LAMP identifies 49 priority actions to reduce chemical contamination, manage nutrients and algae, prevent and control invasive species, and restore and protect habitat and native species. While the plan was recently published, the U.S. and Canada have been implementing the LAMP since 2020. All 49 actions are currently on track for successful implementation by 2024.
The LAMP was developed by the Lake Superior Partnership, a collaborative team of natural resource managers led by the governments of the United States and Canada, in cooperation and consultation
with state and provincial governments, Tribal governments, First Nations, municipal governments, and watershed management agencies. Check out the Lake Superior Partnership’s latest annual report.
