Great Lakes agreement includes sanctions for polluting municipalities

Reducing phosphorus into the Great Lakes is a goal of a new agreement signed last month by the federal governments of Canada and the United States. Agriculture is going to be a target but so will municipalities according to the mayor of Goderich


Those toughened laws, signed by top environment officials from Canada and the United States in early September  to deal with pollution in the Great Lakes, are also going to include penalties against municipal sewage plants, says the mayor of Goderich.
