A regional groundwater-flow model of the Lake Michigan Basin and surrounding areas has been developed in support of the Great Lakes Basin Pilot project under the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water Availability and Use Program. The transient 2-million-cell model incorporates multiple aquifers and pumping centers that create water-level drawdown that extends into deep saline waters. The measure would leave the door open for Great Lakes water to be shipped to areas in the region that are outside the basin but prevent it from heading to other areas, such as the Southwest. AP/Detroit Free Press_ 7/19/ Environmental groups seek commitment from Michigan lawmakers to support voluntary agreement on Great Lakes water withdrawal.

A new state-wide water resources law went into effect on Febru This law supercedes the previous Great Lakes Water Registration Program.
The law requires a DEC permit for water withdrawal systems having the capacity to withdrawgallons per day (gpd) or more of surface water or groundwater with some exceptions. The Great Lakes Basin consists of the Great Lakes and the surrounding lands of the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in the United States, and the province of Ontario in Canada, whose direct surface runoff and watersheds form a large drainage basin that feeds into the lakes.
It is generally considered to also include a small area.

The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact is an agreement between eight Great Lakes states and two Canadian provinces to regulate diversion of water from the Great Lakes basin.
The goal is to provide protection and sustainable use of the Great Lakes for future generations. If your withdrawal is located in the Great Lakes Basin (Lake Superior or Lake Michigan) and you plan to withdraw water at an average ofgallons per day or more in any Great Lakes Basin water withdrawal registration handbook book period from the sources on your property, then you must apply and receive a water use permit prior to withdrawing water (required since December 8, ).
There are no Water Use Permit application fees.

“Regional Body” means the Great Lakes—St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body established by this Agreement. The Great Lakes Regional Water Use Database has been around for over 20 years. Originally, it was established by the Great Lakes states and provinces in response to the recommendation of the Great Lakes Charter ofwhich calls for a uniform, consistent base of data of Great Lakes water withdrawals, diversions and consumptive uses.
The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) is a commitment between the United States and Canada to restore and protect the waters of the Great Lakes. The Agreement provides a framework for identifying binational priorities and implementing actions that improve water quality.
EPA coordinates U.S. activities that fulfill the Agreement. Great Lakes water for industrial, municipal or agricultural uses within their boundaries. Although the interests of states outside the Great Lakes Basin to use of Great Lakes water do not constitute rights,9 at present there are two legal means by which those states may attain access to the water in the Lakes.
The Great Lakes Initiative Toxicity Clearinghouse is a central location for information on criteria, toxicity data, exposure parameters and other supporting documents used in developing water quality standards in the Great Lakes watershed.
The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) defines consumptive use in the Annual Report of the Great Lakes Regional Water Use Data Base Repository Representing Water Use Data as “that portion of water withdrawn or withheld from the Great Lakes Basin and assumed to be lost or otherwise not returned to the Great Lakes Basin due to evapotranspiration.
About the Great Lakes Commission. Since it was established in by the Great Lakes Basin Compact, the Great Lakes Commission has worked with its member states and provinces to address issues of common concern, develop shared solutions and collectively advance an agenda to protect and enhance the region’s economic prosperity and environmental health.
All eight Great Lakes states are required to mandate water withdrawal limits by the Great Lakes Basin Compact. Each state decides individually what those limits will be. Two Canadian provinces, Ontario and Quebec, also signed onto the compact in a companion agreement to respect Canadian laws.

Important efforts are now underway to protect all the water resources of the Great Lakes Basin. The objective of this Web site is to support those efforts and to improve our understanding of ground-water flow in relation to the Great Lakes.
The information on this site is organized in two main parts. The Lake Superior Basin is Minnesota's only basin that is on a Great Lake coastline.
As such, the basin is in a unique position to take advantage of international, national, and multi-state efforts to manage and protect the Great Lakes. Reports. Lake Superior Basin Plan; Lake Superior Streams Sediment Assessment - Phase I report.
This presents a challenge given the interconnected nature of the water cycle in the basin. Preventing groundwater contamination and managing impacts and stresses on groundwater quality and quantity within the Great Lakes basin are key to protecting the Great Lakes.
