Protection of the Waters of the Great Lakes: 2015 Review of the Recommendations from the February 2000 Report
International Joint Commission
2016/01/19

This report summarizes the International Joint Commission’s findings and recommendations on the protection of the waters of the Great Lakes from potentially harmful consumptive uses and diversions. These findings and recommendations result from a consultants’ review of recommendations originally made in a report issued by the Commission in the year 2000, Protection of the Waters of the Great Lakes.  That report, and the consultants’ review, dealt with a 1999 reference from the Canadian and U.S. governments to examine matters that might affect levels and flows of Great Lakes waters, including consumptive uses and diversions and related laws and policies. 

Synthesis of Public Comment on the 2014 Progress Report under the Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement
International Joint Commission
2015/12/22

Under Article VIII of the 1991 Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement, the Governments of Canada and the United States established a bilateral Air Quality Committee to assist with implementation of the Agreement, to review progress made, and to prepare Progress Reports at least every two years. Environment Canada and the United States Environmental Protection Agency are the lead agencies on the Committee. Under Article IX of the Agreement, the International Joint Commission (IJC) is assigned responsibility to invite comments on each Progress Report prepared by the Air Quality Committee, to submit a synthesis of the comments received to the Governments, and to release the synthesis of comments to the public. This report provides a synthesis of the comments received on the 2014 Progress Report for the years 2012-2014.

Red-Assiniboine Basin SPARROW Model Development Technical Document
Jenkinson and Benoy, publisher National Research Council Canada
2015/06/01

Many watersheds straddle the border between Canada and the United States. Through the International Joint Commission’s (IJC) International Watersheds Initiative (IWI), the Spatially-Referenced Regressions on Watershed attributes (SPARROW) model, developed by the US Geological Survey (USGS), was applied to the binational Red and Assiniboine River basins, which span portions of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. The impetus for this novel application was to better understand and quantify the sources of nutrients, in particular phosphorus, that contribute to the eutrophication of Lake Winnipeg.
