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.
