This report explains the data management base developed for overview modelling and the modelling process which helped PLUARG (Pollution from Land Use Activities Group) to determine the relative importance of all pollutant sources and to develop plans for pollution abatement from land sources. Overview modelling provided a means to compare present and future trends in pollutant inputs to the lakes, as well as a methodology for measuring the effectiveness of alternative remedial programs applied to urban nonpoint, rural nonpoint, and municipal point sources. The process was used to examine pollutant inputs to southern Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Total phosphorus and suspended solids received the most attention.
