GLRI Action Plan III

EPA GLNPO Director Chris Korleski talking about Action Plan III at a public engagement session.

EPA and its federal partners are in the process of developing Action Plan III, which will outline priorities and goals for the GLRI for 2020-2024.

Having now concluded a series of public engagement sessions, EPA expects to request additional public input when it releases a draft Action Plan.

Action Plan III will identify five focus areas for environmental progress:

  • toxic substances and areas of concern
  • invasive species
  • nonpoint source pollution impacts on nearshore health
  • habitat and species
  • future restoration actions
