Lake Erie is exhibiting symptoms of extreme stress resulting in harmful and nuisance algal blooms and zones of low oxygen that threaten drinking water quality, fish populations, beach quality, coastal recreation, the overall ecological health of the lake and the Canadian economy.
The Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario have developed a draft action plan that identifies actions to reduce phosphorus and algal growth in Lake Erie. To tackle these issues, actions from all levels of government, First Nations and Métis communities, as well as sector groups, conservation authorities, and the public is needed.
Public meetings will be held on:
- May 16, 2017 from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm at the Dunnville Community Lifespan Center, 275 Ramsey Drive, Dunnville, ON
- May 18, 2017 from 7:00pmto 9:00 pm at the Chatham-Kent John D. Bradley Convention Centre, Meeting Room 1A, 565 Richmond St., Chatham, ON
