Lakewide Action and Management Plans (LAMPs)

The Lake Erie Management Plan (LAMP) is a binational action plan for restoring and protecting the Lake Erie ecosystem. The Lake Erie Partnership develops and implements the LAMP. U.S. EPA and Environment Canada lead the Partnership. It facilitates information sharing, sets priorities, and helps coordinate binational environmental protection and restoration activities.

The next Lake Erie LAMP will be issued in 2018. Until then, the Lake Erie Partnership will be assessing the state of the lake, measuring progress against existing LAMP goals and objectives, and promoting management actions to address identified problems.
