The Great Lakes Basin Program for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control is all about making a difference—in water quality, land use, and agricultural productivity. Initiated in 1991 and authorized in the 2002 and 2007 Farm Bills, this federal/state partnership has supported well over 400 demonstration and technical assistance projects throughout the Great Lakes region. The Basin Program is coordinated by the Great Lakes Commission in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Natural Resources Conservation Service), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Great Lakes Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Task Force oversees the program and ensures that goals and objectives are met. Task force members include representatives from the eight Great Lakes states, the partner agencies and other federal and regional interests.

In taking action to prevent soil erosion and sedimentation, the Great Lakes Basin Program protects the water quality of the Great Lakes!

Events around the region:

November 7, 2014
14th Annual Great Lakes Water Conference
Toledo, OH
Are we protecting our water resources or are we engaging in regulatory overreach, threatening shipping, and stifling an energy boom? How do we prevent recurrence of the crisis that deprived half a million persons in the Toledo area of drinking water this August? These questions will be among those addressed by panels of experts at the 14th annual Great Lakes Water Conference on Friday, November 7 at the University of Toledo College of Law. The conference is sponsored by the College of Law and its Legal Institute of the Great Lakes.
