The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Council (Compact Council) was established on December 8, 2008, when the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact became State and federal law. Each of the eight Great Lakes State legislatures ratified the Compact and Congress provided its consent for this historic accord.


The Compact details how the States will work together to manage and protect the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin. It also provides a framework for each State to enact programs and laws protecting the Basin.

Feedback Sought on Draft Revised Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Compact Council and Regional Body Procedures
On September 1 2017, the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Council (Compact Council) and the Great Lakes St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body (Regional Body) created a Procedures Update Team (Team). The Team was charged with drafting updates to the Regional Body Interim Procedures and Compact Council Interim Guidance for the Regional Body and Compact Council’s consideration. This task includes recommending changes to these documents and potentially drafting new rules for the Compact Council’s consideration. Each member of the Regional Body and Compact Council appointed at least one individual to the joint Team.

The Team has been working to develop its recommendations, and earlier today transmitted to the Regional Body and Compact Council members initial versions of its draft recommendations. 

The drafts and information on how to provide comments are available on the Regional Body and Compact Council websites at http://www.glslregionalbody.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx and http://www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx.
