Phosphorus Control and the Lake Erie Basin

Michigan has been proactive in the pursuit of total phosphorus reductions since Lake Erie was first declared void of living organisms in the 1960’s. The Detroit Water and Sewer Department is by far the largest point source discharge to Lake Erie. The reductions in this discharge were the main reason the Lake Erie ecosystem has seen many water quality problems over the past 50 years, including problems with nutrient enrichment. Environmental conditions began to change again in the late 1980s as new aquatic invasive species, like Dreissenid mussels (which is a species or subspecies of freshwater mussels), established in Lake Erie. These invasive species changed the lake ecosystem in many ways that have been largely unexplained.

Through an adaptive management process, the ongoing initiative is to achieve a recommended 40 percent total load reduction in the amount of total and dissolved reactive phosphorus entering Lake Erie’s Western Basin by the year 2025 with an interim goal of a 20 percent reduction by 2020.  Michigan has three main areas of focus for phosphorus reductions – the Detroit River, the Raisin River, and the state’s portion of the Maumee River basin.
