Group raises concerns about Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

The Great Lakes Boating Federation has sent a letter to the EPA voicing its concern that there is no boating representative on the advisory board for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s advisory board includes representatives from universities, research institutions, municipalities, Native American tribes and a foundation, but the omission of an individual who represents the needs and desires of one of the biggest, if not the biggest users of the Great Lakes — recreational boaters and sport anglers — was “appalling,” federation president Ned Dikmen said in a statement.

In the letter, he points out that implementation of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is an important and essential undertaking on the part of the federal government. At the same time, such an effort can only be considered “hollow” and without merit if it does not consider and include the needs of recreational boaters.
