Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study

 
Study Overview:

The Great Lakes Coastal Resiliency Study (GLCRS) is an estimated 6 year and $14.4 million cost-shared study with the Great Lakes States: Illinois, Indiana, New York, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The GLCRS is a comprehensive watershed assessment of the Great Lakes coastal areas and identifies coastal areas that could be vulnerable to future storms, flooding, extreme low or high water levels, erosion, and accretion; the identification of a range of measures to improve coastal resiliency; and the development of a collaborative risk informed decision framework to support the identification and prioritize of coastal investments by federal, state, and local governments, Tribal Nations, and nongovernmental organizations. The study will be conducted in accordance with Section 211 of Water Resources and Development Act (WRDA) 2020 and the Implementation Guidance for Section 211 of WRDA 2020 issued by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works (ASA(CW)) on 17 September 2021. 

Study Authority:

Section 211(a) of the Water Resources Development Act of 2020 provides direction to the Secretary in carrying out the comprehensive assessment of water resources needs for the Great Lakes System under Section 729 of WRDA 1986 (33 U.S.C. 2267a), as required by Section 1219 of WRDA 2018.
