The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact is a historic agreement among the eight Great Lakes states to protect Great Lakes water. The Compact, which came into force on December 8, , protects wildlife and habitat from water diversions from the Great Lakes basin and promotes sound water management within the basin. Great Lakes Regional Water Use for Figure 1. Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin The Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River – the world’s largest freshwater system – span an area of , square miles (, square kilometers). Its total volume is quadrillion gallons (25 quadrillion liters), an amount that would fill 9.

Under WRDA, new diversions of Great Lakes water outside of the basin, are regulated by the eight Great Lakes states – requiring approval of all eight governors and the premiers of the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) defines consumptive use in the Annual Report of the Great Lakes Regional Water Use Data Base Repository Representing Water Use Data as “that portion of water withdrawn or withheld from the Great Lakes Basin and assumed to be lost or otherwise not returned to the Great Lakes Basin due to evapotranspiration.

A new state-wide water resources law went into effect on Febru This law supercedes the previous Great Lakes Water Registration Program. The law requires a DEC permit for water withdrawal systems having the capacity to withdrawgallons per day (gpd) or more of surface water or groundwater with some exceptions.
Diversions may transfer water in or out of the Great Lakes basin, or between the watersheds of different lakes or rivers within the basin. While the impacts of existing diversions on lake levels are minor, they alter the natural flow of the Great Lakes and water returned from diversions may be of a different quality than when it was withdrawn.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The Compact A. On March 4,the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact was signed into New York State Environmental Conservation Law by Governor Eliot Spitzer as 21 ECL Title Section of the Act directs the New York Great Lakes Basin Advisory Council (GLBAC) to: *.
The attention to the fate of ground water in the Great Lakes Basin has prompted scientific studies. A USGS report published in titled “ The Importance of Ground Water in the Great Lakes Region ” (Water-Resources Investigation Report ) reviewed what.
The Great Lakes are, from west to east: Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and are a dominant part of the physical and cultural heritage of North America. Shared with Canada and spanning more than miles (1, kilometers) from west to east, these vast inland freshwater seas provide water for consumption, transportation, power, recreation and a host of other uses.
Great Lakes agriculture generates more than $15 billion a year in products from livestock, dairy, grain and corn, and it Great Lakes Basin water withdrawal registration handbook for 7% of total U.S.
food production. The environmental issues related to agricultural practices directly shape the current and future health of both our water and our region’s farming economy.
A council that manages and protects the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River basin is changing the rules for communities that want to withdraw and use water outside the watershed. But Great Lakes mayors and environmental groups say the changes don’t go far enough to strengthen a multi-state agreement governing use of the lakes’ water supply.
Industry Expertise. There is a wealth of industry knowledge in the leaders of Great Basin Water Co. We are proud to share their expertise with you on what it takes to provide our communities with reliable services, optimal customer care and deliver the best value in water and wastewater management.
The Great Lakes is the largest basin of fresh water in the world, Lehr said, containing some quadrillion gallons of water and pouring out, through the St.
Lawrence Seaway, some billion gallons per day. Despite the activities of irrigators and others, water. Estimates of water withdrawals in the United States part of the Great Lakes Basin and of its watersheds designated by the 8-digit hydrologic unit code (HUCs) indicate that about billion gallons per day (Bgal/d) were withdrawn for practically all categories of use in Virtually all water withdrawn was freshwater.
Surface-water withdrawals totaled Bgal/d, or 95 percent of. Annual Report of the Great Lakes Regional Water Use Database Representing Water Use Data 6 Great Lakes Regional Water Use for Figure 1.
Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin The Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River Basin – the world’s largest freshwater system – spans an area ofsquare miles (, square kilometers). Several laws, policies, and governing bodies already regulate the use, withdrawal, and diversion of water from the Great Lakes Basin; however, the concern over domestic and international demand for Great Lakes water has prompted officials from the United States and Canada to reevaluate these laws and : Stephen R.

The purposes of this article are to assist with each of the following: (1). the region’s population continues to grow, water is being converted from agricultural to urban use and groundwater sources are being used more extensively.

at present there are two legal means by which those states may attain access to the water in the Lakes. Great Lakes River Basin Initiative. America’s Great Lakes — Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario — hold 21 percent of the world’s surface fresh water, providing habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife and drinking water for more than 40 million people.

[Minimum (Min), median, maximum (Max), 25th percentile, and 75th percentile are in percent and rounded to the nearest whole number. The Great Lakes watershed includes eight U.S. States: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.
In MarchU.S. EPA published Water Quality Guidance for the Great Lakes watershed, commonly known as the Great Lakes Initiative (GLI). The guidance consists of. The Great Lakes Compact drew a clear line—the boundary of the Great Lakes basin—to contain Great Lakes water, Annin said.
Wisconsin isn’t new to controversial diversions outside that boundary. Waukesha, Wisconsin, applied for a diversion which was approved in after a review process by all the Great Lakes states and provinces.
However, looming problems with water quality in the Great Lakes have been around a long time and the United States and Canada have a somewhat elaborate, if little .
