Lake Simcoe Environmental Management Strategy

Lake Simcoe Environmental Management Strategy (LSEMS) is a program that identified and measured the sources of phosphorus entering Lake Simcoe. Remedial measures were then evaluated and recommended to reduce these inputs and work toward cleaning up Lake Simcoe.

The links below are to reports in PDF that comprise the body of evidence that LSEMS is based on.
