Study to Explore Separating Great Lakes and Mississippi Basin

Thursday, December 29, 2005
According to reports, a growing number of scientists, advocacy groups and public officials believe that it's time for man to think seriously about separating the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins. It may be the best way, they say, to stop the spread of invasive species between the basins. The Alliance for the Great Lakes has launched the first study. With $125,000 in funding from the Great Lakes Fishery Trust, Great Lakes Fishery Commission and the US-Canada International Joint Commission, the Chicago-based Alliance for the Great Lakes will spend the next year studying the feasibility of permanently separating the two watersheds.
