Niagara River Toxics Management Plan Reports


In 1987, four environmental agencies in the United States and Canada ("the Four Parties") signed a Declaration of Intent to significantly reduce toxic chemical pollutants in the Niagara River. The Niagara River Toxics Management Plan (NRTMP) is a detailed annual work plan which targets 18 priority toxics for reduction.

Overall, the NRTMP has met its 50% reduction goal for the ten targeted priority toxics, and some by more than 75% by addressing point and non-point pollution sources. In a 1996 Letter of Support, the Four Parties formally re-affirmed their commitment to continue reductions of priority toxic loadings to the Niagara River.
