Environmental Impacts on the Great Lakes Waters

COURSE NO: C03-041
Environmental Impacts on the Great Lakes Waters
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the Great Lakes waterway and the degree and sources of pollution affecting each lake and what is being done to bring each lake and each lake main tributaries back to their original delicate state of balance.


For years, man thought the Great Lakes could be used as a dumping ground for every conceivable waste that was created. Since then, it has been learned that, in the past before the pollutants arrived, the Great Lakes were in a delicate state of balance. Man has upset that state of balance and it is proving very difficult to return the lakes back to their original pristine state. The problems have been associated with the disposal of animal, human, and industrial waste, along with farm-land runoff into the streams and rivers that feed the Great Lakes and into the Great Lakes themselves.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to environmental engineers, civil engineers, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the Great Lakes waters.
