International Joint Commission Listening Session

Step In and Speak Out for the Great Lakes: Lake Superior

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Northland College, Alvord Theater in the Ponzio Campus Center

1411 Ellis Ave.

Ashland, WI 54806

7 – 9 p.m.

Join the International Joint Commission and the Ashland region’s organizations, governments and citizens who are working to protect the region’s water resources. We invite you to step in and speak out for the Great Lakes, and look forward to your participation and contributions to this valuable conversation.

The evening includes:

  • Presentation about the Western Lake Superior Basin's water quality issues by Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation Operations Manager Valerie Damstra

  • Listening session for the public to provide the International Joint Commission with comments.

The IJC seeks the public's views on the progress governments are making to improve and protect the health of Lake Superior and the Great Lakes.

The International Joint Commission is a Canada-United States treaty organization that works on issues facing boundary waters, including the Great Lakes. This meeting is part of its consultation throughout the Great Lakes region to assess both countries’ progress to accomplish the goals they agreed to in the 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. To review the governments’ latest progress report for their work under the Agreement, please visit https://binational.net/2019/06/13/2019-prp-rep/.

Your and others’ views are essential to the IJC’s review process, so thank you for participating and please share this invitation with others.
