• Develop a new scientific methodology relating economic production, watershed flow depletion, and ecosystem services
  • Pilot the new methodology to quantify these relationships in select HUC-12 scale watersheds and downstream watersheds in the Great Lakes Basin
  • Work with an advisory board of policymakers, watershed advocates, and leaders of business and finance to determine the implications of these relationships for water and economic development policy
  • Determine how this pilot project’s findings could be further developed and implemented to inform Great Lakes Basin water policy, including future revisions to the Great Lakes Compact.
