Lake Superior

Map of Lake Superior Lake Superior is a vast fresh water resource that has not experienced the same levels of development, urbanization and pollution as the other Great Lakes. Recognizing the unique qualities of this resource, the United States and Canada developed A Binational Program to Restore and Protect the Lake Superior Basin. This program focuses on the entire Lake Superior ecosystem - air, land and water – to restore degraded areas and protect this unique headwater lake for the people and wildlife that use it.
