Lake Superior Collaborative Meeting Presentations - November 2014

On Nov. 19-20, 2014, EPA hosted a meeting in Duluth, Minnesota to kick off a Lake Superior Environmental Monitoring Collaborative. Ten tribes, eight federal agencies and the states of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin participated in the meeting. Technical experts from state and federal agencies and tribes made presentations describing ongoing environmental monitoring work in the Lake Superior Basin and discussed opportunities to improve access to this information.

At the end of the meeting, participants agreed on several next steps:

  • Agencies and tribes will submit information about their Lake Superior basin environmental monitoring work to an on-line catalogue being developed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
  • The Lake Superior Binational Program will convene a workgroup to propose directions for future environmental monitoring work in the Lake Superior Basin.
  • EPA will convene additional meetings over the coming months to discuss the Lake Superior Environmental Collaborative with academia, non-governmental organizations, and the regulated community in the Lake Superior Basin.
