This 2003 Workshop, hosted by POWI, was based on “Managing Groundwater Resources in the Great Lakes Basin: Securing Our Future”, written by Canadian water expert, Ralph Pentland and US water expert, Gerry Galloway. The Discussion Paper was developed as a catalyst to stimulate an in-depth and extended dialogue on the groundwater resources of the Great Lakes Basin. It provides an overview of groundwater in the Great Lakes and the institutional and legal setting that governs the use, protection, diversion and removal of water from the Basin. The paper also contains, in draft form, a desired Vision for the Future and nine Principles that can provide the required direction to realize that vision.
