For years, man thought the Great Lakes could be used as a dumping ground for every conceivable waste that was created. Since then, it has been learned that, in the past before the pollutants arrived, the Great Lakes were in a delicate state of balance. Man has upset that state of balance and it is proving very difficult to return the lakes back to their original pristine state. The problems have been associated with the disposal of animal, human, and industrial waste, along with farm-land runoff into the streams and rivers that feed the Great Lakes and into the Great Lakes themselves.

This course describes the Great Lakes waterway and the degree and sources of pollution affecting each lake and what is being done to bring each lake and its main tributaries back to their original delicate state of balance. Many of the lessons we are learning about the pollution of the Great Lakes and the clean-up efforts can be applied to other lakes around the world.

This course is intended for Environmental Engineers, Civil Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and anyone else interested in the environmental issues affecting the Great Lakes.
