Ohio’s Domestic Action Plan (DAP) will advance efforts toward the proposed 40% nutrient reduction target put forth in the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement of 2012 (GLWQA). It is being developed in conjunction with the USEPA Draft DAP. The USEPA DAP will serve as an umbrella document, and the states of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania are each developing their own state level plans (list of links to federal, state, and province draft DAPs).
The final due date for the combined US Federal/State DAPs is February 28, 2018.
