About this grant

The Great Lakes Compact, an interstate agreement, is intended to sharply limit the diversion of waters outside the Great Lakes Basin and improve the management of water resources within the basin. The Natural Resources Defense Council, a national environmental organization with a strong regional presence in the Midwest, will provide tools and expertise at the regional and state levels to help implement the compact’s water conservation and efficiency elements.
