Port Huron-Sarnia / Detroit Windsor

A Reference on air pollution in the Port Huron-Sarnia and Detroit-Windsor region to determine if the air was being polluted on either side to the detriment of the health, safety or general welfare of citizens or property on the other side of the boundary; to identify the sources and extent of the pollution; and to advise on remedial measures and their estimated cost. The IJC was also asked to bring air pollution problems in all other boundary areas to the governments' attention.

The detailed study confirmed the existence of air pollution and quantified the extent of the problem in the area specified. The IJC recommended specific air quality objectives and a detailed study of pollution in Detroit-St. Clair River areas. The IJC continues to address ongoing air quality issues along the boundary in this area. (See also Docket 99).
