News Advisory:

What: After one of the most comprehensive and coordinated planning processes in the history of the region, federal and state leaders are gathering in Duluth, Minnesota, to release a draft plan to restore the Great Lakes.

The document is the result of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration, a U.S. EPA-led initiative charged by President Bush with restoring the Great Lakes.

During the briefing, Great Lakes advocates offer their input on the plan:

How does it deal with the problems that plague the Lakes-sewage overflows, pollution, invasive species and habitat destruction?

What are the strengths and weaknesses of the plan?

How much will the plan cost? Why is restoration needed now?
