Rep. Mitchell Responds to EPA’s Release of the LAMP Plan for Lake Huron
Shelby Township, Michigan – Congressman Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP) for Lake Huron. The LAMP is a binational plan between the American and Canadian governments that provides an assessment of Lake Huron’s ecosystem, identifies ecological risks, and sets priorities and further action to restore and protect Lake Huron.
“The Great Lakes are Michigan’s single greatest natural resource, and this plan is an important part of our overall strategy to protect the health and wellbeing of our lakes,” said Mitchell. “In Congress I have, and will continue to push for full funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, whose projects improve water quality, combat invasive species, and protect the Great Lakes ecosystem. I will also continue to fight threats to our Great Lakes, like the proposed nuclear disposal site near Lake Huron in Kincardine, Ontario.”
