The mission of the Lake Ontario Coastal Initiative (LOCI), encompassing all New York State North Coast stakeholders from the Niagara River to the St. Lawrence River, is to enlist and retain broad public commitment for remediation, restoration, protection, conservation and sustainable use of the coastal region. This mission will be accomplished by securing funds and resources to achieve scientific understanding, educate citizens, and implement locally supported priorities, programs and projects as identified through this Initiative.


This Action Agenda has been prepared under EPA Agreement X972962000. The Lake Ontario Coastal Initiative, its Partners, and Sponsors express their thanks and deep appreciation to Congressman James T. Walsh (25th District of New York State) for his support in advocating for these funds. We also thank Senator Clinton, Senator Schumer, Congressman McHugh, Congressman Reynolds, Congresswoman Slaughter for their interest in initiative.
