The Great Lakes Compact After 15 Years

January 17 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Presented by:  Shaili Pfeiffer, Natural Resources Staff Specialist, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

The 2005 landmark agreement, the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement, was signed by the eight Great Lakes Governors and the Premiers of Ontario and Quebec.  The agreement is implemented in the U.S. by a legally binding interstate Compact and is best known for its prohibition on diversions of Great Lakes water. Significantly, it commits the states and provinces to implement parallel water quantity management programs across the Great Lakes Basin – the largest fresh surface water system in the world. The last fifteen years have seen the implementation of the vision of the architects of the Great Lakes Compact and Agreement bringing together shared principles for water quantity management.

Luncheon-Lectures are held in the Arboretum Visitor Center Auditorium. A buffet lunch is followed by the educational presentation.  Each lecture costs $40.
