For this reason, the United States and Canada came together in to sign the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA), a binational agreement to protect this precious natural resource.

The initial intent was "to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters of the Great Lakes." Much has changed since The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between the U.S.
