Last week, the province of Ontario joined a new Great Lakes Basin partnership to block Asian carp from getting into the Great Lakes. Ontario is joining Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin in this basin partnership.
Water Canada reported that the partnership will commit strategic and financial resources to support the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Tentatively Selected Plan (TSP) and offer a combination of solutions to reduce the risk of invasive carp from entering the Great Lakes at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam in Joliet, Illinois.

Partnering with Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin on the Brandon Road Lock and Dam project will build on our long-standing efforts to protect the Great Lakes against aquatic invasions and I look forward to continuing to work together to ensure our shared waterways and their ecosystems remain healthy and resilient.”
