The Lake Superior Basin is experiencing effects of water pollution and other environmental impairments. This report has identified specific areas where air and water pollution sources are interfering with recreational use and lessening the basin's environmental quality. The fact that Lake Superior is the only remaining lake of the Great Lakes still in a relatively unpolluted condition and that it is the major source of water for the lower Great Lakes, makes it very urgent that a pollution prevention philosophy be adopted as quickly as possible. Close coordination among all levels of government and private enterprise, the use of sound planning, and, most importantly, the use of effective enforcement measures will all be necessary in eliminating existing environmental problem areas and protecting those areas of high environmental quality.
