EPA recently issued common-sense guidelines to reduce toxic pollution in the Great Lakes and ensure protection for the environment and people living in the area. Will this protection come at a reasonable cost. Results from a detailed evaluation of impacts for three communities in the region reveal that public health and environmental benefits will outweigh the costs of achieving those reductions. The three communities evaluated were the Fox River near Green Bay, Wisconsin; the Saginaw River near Bay City, Michigan; and the Black River near Cleveland, Ohio. Information on the case study results is provided.
