The Rochester Embayment designation refers to a portion of Lake Ontario and a portion of the Genesee River near Rochester, New York.
The Remedial Action Plan (RAP) will identify water quality problems and specific actions that need to be taken by various parties to address the problems. The Remedial Action Plan effort has been undertaken due to an international agreement to improve the water quality of the Great Lakes water system. The International Agreement, known as the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, is described in more detail in other sections of this chapter. The preparation of the RAP is being coordinated by the Monroe County Department of Planning and Development through a contract with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).
