Contents Notes
This report is to highlight the findings and conclusions of the 1978-1979 Lake Erie Intensive Study by placing them in perspective with earlier investigations and subsequent monitoring data from 1980 to 1982, where available. The primary purpose of this report is to provide management information in the form of a review of the lake's status and its trends and in the form of recommendations to ensure continued improvements in the quality of its waters and biota. Lake Erie has experienced several decades of accelerated eutrophication and toxic substances contamination. During the latter part of the 1960s remedial actions were planned and by the latter part of the 1970s, many of the plans were at least partially implemented.
