The United States and Canada are extraordinarily fortunate to share the Great Lakes, a world-class resource containing one-fifth of all the fresh surface water on earth. The importance of this international treasure was recognized nearly 40 years ago when the United States and Canada first signed the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (Agreement) that committed our two countries to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters of the Great Lakes Basin Ecosystem. The updated Agreement provides a new set of goals that will guide future actions to protect and restore this vital asset.
