Beach Project Initiative

The Great Lakes Regional Collaboration (GLRC) identifies coastal health as a challenge recognizing the significance of beaches to the economic well-being, health and quality of life of the region's citizens.  Contamination leading to beach advisories continues to be a concern in the Basin.  The GLRC calls for identification of sources of contamination and remediation.  Sanitary surveys and predictive modeling are a means to achieve these goals.
