GAO Reports on Great Lakes Water Quality

Monday, August 29, 2005
The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a Report regarding efforts of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure the quality of waters of the Great Lakes. The report states that the EPA Great Lakes Initiative has limited potential to improve overall water quality in the Great Lakes Basin because it primarily focuses on regulated point sources of pollution, while nonpoint sources (such as air deposition and agricultural runoff) are greater sources of pollution. Note: This is just one more in a long string of reports showing that ships are a minor source of water pollution – even while ships continue to be the primary focus of attention by law enforcement and by environmental advocacy groups.
