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.

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