To highlight the effect of pollution in the Great Lakes on the human population, there are concerns. The Great Lakes (French: les Grands-Lacs), also called the Laurentian Great Lakes and the Great Lakes of North America, are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes primarily in the upper mid-east region of North America, on the Canada–United States border, which connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence consist of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario.

With GLRI funding, NOAA has developed Great Lakes ERMA (Environmental Response Management Application). ERMA is an online mapping tool for coastal pollution cleanup, restoration, and response efforts in the Great Lakes Basin, from Minnesota to New York in the United States and from Ontario to Quebec in Canada.

Feb. 9, - Sailors that discovered the Great Lakes called them Sweetwater Seas because they contained drinkable water. Today, that water is under threat from chemical pollution. A recent report from the International Joint Commission, a U.S.

– Canadian panel that monitors Great Lakes water quality, states the efforts to clean up the lakes. The Great Lakes form the largest surface freshwater system on Earth.

More than 30 million people live in the Great Lakes basin, and the impact of their daily activities, from the water consumed to the waste returned, directly affects the Great Lakes environment. Adopt-a-Beach volunteers keep over 18 tons of plastic pollution out of the Great Lakes each year.

Every year, volunteers with the Alliance’s Adopt-a-Beach program participate in hundreds of beach cleanups across all five Great Lakes. Every year, 15.
