Federal agencies ask for public comments on next Great Lakes restoration plan
Federal agencies are asking for the public’s input on a new action plan for the Great Lakes.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency and other federal partners are asking for the public’s input before a May 24th.
The plan’s goals include fish that are safe to eat, water that's safe for recreation, and controlling existing invasive species, among other things. Over the past decade, the initiative has funded more than four thousand restoration projects.
The Trump administration has threatened to dramatically slash the program’s funding, though that attempt faced bipartisan opposition from members of Congress from Great Lakes states.
