Lake Superior Zero Discharge Demonstration Program and 2005 Critical Chemical Reduction Milestones
This document provides an overview of the pollutant reduction success achieved and challenges remaining at the halfway point of the Lake Superior Zero Discharge Demonstration Program (ZDDP), based on the 2005 Critical Chemical Reduction Milestones. The goal of the Zero Discharge Demonstration Program (ZDDP) is to achieve zero release of certain designated persistent bioaccumulative toxic substances in the Lake Superior basin. The Zero Discharge Demonstration Program is part of the Lake Superior Binational Program, which also includes the Lake Superior Lakewide Management Plan. The Lake Superior Lakewide Management Plan is a binational action plan for cooperatively restoring and protecting the ecosystem of Lake Superior. The Lake Superior Lakewide Management Plan is coordinated by a committee with membership from both Canada and the United States, including Environment Canada and other federal, provincial, and state governments and First Nations/tribal organizations.
