June 15 DEP Webinar On Draft Plan To Reduce Phosphorus In Lake Erie

Department of Environmental Protection is inviting citizens to share their views on how the Commonwealth can best achieve elimination of nutrient pollution in Lake Erie by commenting on the Domestic Action Plan which was created to assist in the reduction of phosphorus in Lake Erie.
The DEP’s Office of the Great Lakes worked in conjunction with the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement to develop new phosphorus reduction targets in Lake Erie that were formally adopted in February 2016.
Pennsylvania is one of five state governments that shares coastline and contributing tributaries to Lake Erie. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency is developing the U.S. Domestic Action Plan that will coordinate and integrate each U.S. state-written DAP.
The U.S. and Canada are bound by the GLWQA to complete these plans by February 2018, and the DAP’s will be included as components of the Lake Erie Lake-Wide Action and Management Plan to be completed by the EPA at the end of 2018.
June 15 Webinar
A webinar to explain and review the plan is scheduled for June 15th at 10:00 a.m.  Click Here to register for the webinar.
A 30-day comment period has begun and ends on June 26th. Interested persons are invited to submit written comments regarding the draft Pennsylvania Domestic Action Plan using DEP’s eComment webpage, by sending email to: or by mail to Department of Environmental Protection, Policy Office, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P.O. Box 2063, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2063.
