Great Lakes Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Program

Keeping What Where?

Sediment and fertilizer nutrients are the two greatest polluters of our waters. The Great Lakes Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Program makes a direct difference—in water quality, land use, and agricultural productivity. This federal/state partnership has supported well over 479 demonstration, educational, restoration and technical assistance projects throughout the Great Lakes region.

In taking action to keep sediment and nutrients on the land, the Sediment/Nutrient Reduction Program protects our water quality, our drinking water and our Great Lakes.
