Through a cooperative agreement, the Great Lakes Commission worked with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Region 5, and its partners in the Lake Michigan Lakewide Management Plan (LaMP) process, to assess existing monitoring efforts in the Lake Michigan basin and subwatersheds, including the ten Lake Michigan Areas of Concern (AOC) and four other tributary watersheds. This report is one of the outcomes of the project, and includes a comprehensive review of monitoring programs at the federal, state and local levels for the targeted watersheds; an analysis of gaps, inconsistencies and unmet needs; an assessment of the adequacy of existing efforts to support critical ecosystem indicators; and recommendations for addressing major monitoring needs, particularly those considered most important for lakewide management decision making. The report has also been used to inform members of the Lake Michigan Forum, local public advisory councils (PACs), and other stakeholders about identifying current, local monitoring efforts and establishing community-based monitoring programs.
