Linking Local Watershed Management Efforts Across the Lake Ontario Basin


Linking Local Watershed Management Efforts across the Lake Ontario Basin was the title of the 5th annual conference of the Finger Lakes-Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance (FLLOWPA) held October 18-19, 1996 in Rochester, New York. The conference also functioned as the first public meeting of the Great Lakes Water Quality Board (WQB) of the International Joint Commission (IJC) under the IJC's revised policy to improve public involvement and consultation in its affairs. The conference was the product of a unique partnership between two water quality entities representing perspectives from different levels - local and basinwide - which saw benefits in meeting together.
