Domestic Action Plan 1.0
In accordance with the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement
Ohio's Domestic Action Plan (DAP) will advance efforts toward the proposed 40% nutrient reduction target put forth in the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement of 2012 (GLWQA). On June 13, 2015, the governors of Ohio and Michigan, and the premier of Ontario committed to a goal of reducing phosphorus loadings to Lake Erie by 40 percent through the signing of the Western Basin of Lake Erie Collaborative Agreement (Collaborative). The Collaborative was intended to serve as the precursor to Ohio's DAP. Ohio’s DAP will expand on the Collaborative implementation initiatives and will also include the Central Basin as well as the Western Basin of Lake Erie.
