The state of Michigan has drafted a plan of action to improve water quality in Lake Erie as well as helping to prevent algal blooms, making it safer for people and aquatic life. The draft plan will be available for public review and comment through Friday, July 14, at www.michigan.gov/deqgreatlakes. Comments can be emailed to DEQ-LakeErieDAP@michigan.gov or mailed to Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Water Resources Division, Attn: Lake Erie DAP, P.O. Box 30458, Lansing, MI 48909. The plan aims to reduce the amount of phosphorus entering Lake Erie to help prevent persistent, intense algal blooms in the western part of Lake Erie, including those that are unsafe for people, and address low dissolved oxygen in the central basin of Lake Erie.  Michigan’s Domestic Action Plan is one of several plans from surrounding states. The final version, along with plans from other Lake Erie Basin states will be integrated into the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s comprehensive plan, scheduled for release in February 2018.
