Blue Accounting convenes binational advisors to help track progress in Lake Erie
The Blue Accounting initiative recently introduced a newly formed advisory group for ErieStat, a website designed to track progress toward the binational goal of reducing phosphorus in Lake Erie by 40%.
Since the launch of ErieStat in 2016, it has been guided by representatives of the Great Lakes states and provinces, the U.S. and Canadian federal governments, and research institutions. The new group brings other organizations with valuable perspectives to the table.
In June 2018, ErieStat began presenting water quality data for select river systems that drain to Lake Erie, supporting the U.S. and Canada in achieving goals set forth in the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, as well as the GLC’s member states and provinces as they track progress toward phosphorus reduction targets. In 2019, ErieStat will begin tracking investments to reduce phosphorous pollution.
