The Great Lakes Partnership to Block Asian Carp is a diverse coalition created to prevent invasive carp from entering the Great Lakes. The partnership was founded by Michigan, Ontario, Ohio and Wisconsin, and was recently joined by the City of Chicago.
The coalition includes recreation, environmental, conservation, business and civic organizations, elected officials, policymakers and thousands of concerned citizens throughout the Great Lakes. The partnership is united in its support of the Army Corps of Engineers’ Tentatively Selected Plan at Brandon Road Lock & Dam in Joliet, Illinois, which serves as the most effective proposal yet developed to prevent the spread of invasive Asian carp into the Great Lakes.
Stopping these invaders’ steady march up Illinois waterways toward Lake Michigan is of highest importance to the Great Lakes’ future. If these dangerous invasive species successfully infiltrate the Great Lakes, they would immediately begin to wreak untold environmental and economic damage.
