Gov. Snyder welcomes Chicago as newest member of Great Lakes Basin Partnership to Block Asian Carp

Monday, April 9, 2018   (0 Comments)

The partnership is a multijurisdictional coalition that supports the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ plan to reduce the risk of invasive carp entering the Great Lakes by upgrading security at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam in Joliet, Illinois. Chicago will provide policy support for the Army Corps’ tentative plan and joins the partnership’s founding members of Michigan, Ontario, Ohio and Wisconsin that have committed to providing support for the tentative plan. “Chicago takes our responsibility to preserve and protect the Great Lakes seriously, and we are proud to stand with our regional partners in the fight against the threat of invasive species,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Chicago will always do our part to safeguard the future of the Great Lakes for future generations, and we hope other Illinois leaders will step up and join us in this essential effort.” Read more.
