"Protection of the Waters of the Great Lakes – Review of the Recommendations in the February 2000 Report"
The International Joint Commission today made available to governments and the public its report on "Protection of the Waters of the Great Lakes – Review of the Recommendations in the February 2000 Report."
The Commission recommended to governments in its 2000 report, "Protection of the Waters of the Great Lakes," that it be given a reference (formal request) to review the recommendations in that report after three years. The Canadian and United States governments agreed to this request, which is the basis for the current report.
