St. Louis River AOC RAP De-listing Roadmap

Purpose

Facilitate a multi-agency coordination effort to develop the delisting roadmap and produce a document of the delisting roadmap.

Objective

The St. Louis River Citizen's Action Committee (SLRCAC) proposed restoration goals for many of the impaired uses through a citizen process, and submitted them to Wisconsin DNR and Minnesota PCA. The agencies will review the proposals in light of environmental data and potential actions. The state agencies review, revisions and clarifications, and adoption of the delisting targets is the next phase that needs to be accomplished. The targets will serve as the roadmap for actions to lead to delisting the AOC. SLRCAC will work with the state agencies to develop the delisting roadmap. SLRCAC will facilitate the multi-agency coordination to develop the delisting roadmap. Produce the delisting roadmap document (with sign-off by the states), conduct public review, publish, distribute and post on the web and continue to build public constituency for sediment remediation in the AOC.

Outcome

Numerous facilitated meetings and extensive information exchanges between the multitudes of agencies working in the St. Louis River AOC. Meaningful public input and participation into the development of the delisting roadmap document. The delisting document will be posted on the organizations web-site. The state agencies will be notified when the posting occurs and will be able to link to the site. The delisting roadmap document will be the final output of the project. The delisting roadmap will guide actions to move the AOC toward restoration of beneficial uses. It is a necessary step for the ultimate outcome of restoring and delisting the AOC.
