Great Lakes pollution
Question submitted on 12/29/04

Where can I find information about pollution in the Great Lakes?

Answer:

U.S. EPA's Great Lakes National Program Office is a very good place to start when looking for information about the Great Lakes. They have many resources, including information about each lake. In particular, the Great Lakes Atlas provides comprehensive information about the history, ecosystem, environmental concerns, and joint management of the Lakes.

Another good resource is the Great Lakes Center for Environmental Education. They're on the web at http://www.greatlakesed.org/.

A good book on the topic is Kehoe, Terence. Cleaning up the Great Lakes : From Cooperation to Confrontation. DeKalb, IL : Northern Illinois University Press, 1997. You should be able to borrow a copy through your local library.
