Lake Erie Foundation (LEF)

Who are they?
The Lake Erie Foundation is the result of the combining of two organizations, the Lake Erie Waterkeeper and Lake Erie Improvement Association. Leaders of these pioneering organizations recognized that a combined long term sustainable effort would be more effective in protecting the entire lake. 
It’s Mission:
To “create and maintain a healthy Lake Erie now and forever as defined by drinkable water, recreational contact and edible fish.”
What’s on the Agenda?
A number of items to tackle in 2018. Lake Erie’s western basin has problems with harmful algal blooms and the central basin frequently has a large dead zone. LEF is committed to focus attention and advocate for the resources necessary to address these problems, assess water quality at public drinking water intakes, and to work toward eliminating beach advisories for harmful algae and bacteria.
How to Help? 
Be an ambassador for our Great Lake Erie - Become a member of LEF
YOUR SUPPORT as a member of THE LAKE ERIE FOUNDATION WILL allow the Foundation to:
·        Be a strong VOICE to help reduce harmful algae in Lake Erie now and to sustain its future.
·        Ensure a 40% nutrient reduction in the western and central Lake Erie basins by 2025.
Require manure to have the same phosphorus limits as commercial fertilizer (currently almost four times as much is allowed to place on fields).Support technology that reduces nutrient runoff from manure, field tiles, ditches, wastewater treatment plants, and failing septic systems to minimize nutrients flowing into Lake Erie·Work with all Lake Erie stakeholders on issues that sustain and improve Lake Erie water quality and habitat, including efforts to address Asian Carp.
It’s all about the Water
