      Declining or low water quality impacts the value of lakes – both economically, ecologically, and socially. For example, if pollution enters a lake, it can reduce the water quality enough such that it is unsafe to drink as well as harm organisms that live in the water, reducing the ecological value of the lake.

Pollution Levels in The Great Lakes. The Laurentian Great Lakes, also known as the Great Lakes of North America encompass five connected inland bodies of water – Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. In the article "Great Lakes Pollution Fight Is Gaining," William K.

Stevens wrote how the water that flows from the Detroit River into Lake Erie seemened clean enough to permit the reintroduction of brown trout, as a result of industrial wastes diminishing and clean up efforts.

Great Lakes’ latest pollution threat: ‘microplastics’. CONNECTTWEETCOMMENTEMAILMORE. Minneapolis – A new contaminant has turned up in western Lake Superior – tiny snarls, tangles and shreds of plastic that are appearing by the hundreds of thousands, mystifying scientists and Minnesota pollution : Jennifer Bjorhus.

Plastic in the lakes is moved to the shore due to winds and lake currents, while ocean pollution floats in patches. Garbage in the Great Lakes often washes ashore in new states or : Chamberlain Smith. MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The average American throws away about pounds of plastic a year, and millions of tons of it goes into the ocean.

Ocean plastic pollution is well documented. Now, there's. One example of pollution on the Lake Michigan shore is the Indiana Dunes, which is located on 45 miles of shoreline of Lake Michigan. Many people have tried to save the Dunes in the last century.

Yet, new threats are always emerging. A few of them include: air pollution, water pollution. Overview Pollution in the Great Lakes is a major problem.

It affects both Canada and the U.S. and has been a problem for over 50 years. Both the Canadian and American governments have taken action against this, but the problem hasn’t gone away yet.

This report will talk about pollution, and its toll on the Great Lakes. The Lake Michigan Diversion Case A significant step toward preservation of Lake Michigan and the entire Great Lakes was realized when the Lake States agreed to the recom- mendations of the Special Master of the Supreme Court in the Chicago Diversion Case.

What’s even scarier is what’s at stake: For most people in Illinois, Lake Michigan means swimming, fishing, and boating. More importantly, Lake Michigan provides drinking water for over 10 million people. "Pollution in the lake, obviously has a detrimental effect on. Water at Wisconsin’s beaches on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior ranked second worst in the country with 14% of water samples exceeding national.

“Some Indiana beaches along Lake Michigan closed after chemical spill,” the Associated Press reported in mid-August. Steel manufacturer ArcelorMittal accidentally released cyanide and ammonia-nitrogen into a tributary that flows to Lake Michigan. In addition to the beach closures, an estimated 3, fish were killed as a result of the incident.

Gee, they sure are great. There is enough water in Lake Superior to submerge all of North and South America in 1 foot of water.

Lake Superior contains 3 quadrillion gallons of water. Because it takes so long to "flush" Lake Michigan (it takes years for a complete change of water), water pollution is a serious concern. Lake Michigan also has the largest sport fishery on the Great Lakes.

Therefore it is especially threatening because pollution has been shown to interfere with reproduction in birds and lake trout. Thousands of fish have died over the past week, since a failure at a steel plant caused cyanide and ammonia to leak into a river that feeds Lake Michigan. CHEMICAL POLLUTION Pollution of Lake Michigan and its tributaries by dissolved chemicals covers a broad range of substances, effects, and sources, the principal source being industrial wastewater eft Iuents.

Drugs Contaminate Lake Michigan. Prescription drugs are contaminating Lake Michigan two miles from Milwaukee’s sewage outfalls, suggesting that the lake is not diluting the compounds as most scientists expected, according to new : Environmental Health News. The Great Lakes Protection Act was recently introduced in Ontario (Bill1st Sess., 40th Leg.).

The Act, administered by the Minister of the Environment, would help to identify areas of concern that may adversely affect the ecological health of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin, and establish and prioritize objectives. This “clicker case” introduces students to the basics of nutrient cycling using a recent example of the expansion of a refinery on Lake Michigan.

The story is told through a series of news clips from Chicago’s National Public Radio affiliate, WBEZ, which covers the northeastern Illinois and.
