About the St. Clair River

The St. Clair River is a key shipping channel in the Great Lakes Seaway system and provides important habitat for many species within its wetland areas. 
It is also a designated as an Area of Concern (AOC) under the Canada–United States Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. AOC's are sites on the Great Lakes system where environmental quality is significantly degraded and beneficial uses, such as the health of our beaches, are impaired.

Canadian and U.S. agencies are implementing a cleanup program, known as the Remedial Action Plan, with guidance from the St. Clair River Binational Public Advisory Council (BPAC) composed of representatives from Michigan and Ontario.
