What is a RAP?
A RAP or Remedial Action Plan is required for each Area of Concern (AOC). It is a cleanup plan for restoring the environmental quality of an AOC such as the St. Clair River. The RAP is administered locally in accordance with the Canada-U.S. Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) and the Canada-Ontario Agreement (COA). The RAP is an ongoing collaborative effort implemented by federal, provincial, and local governments, including First Nations, as well as industry and public partners.
The ultimate goal of the RAP is to identify and complete restoration actions in order to remove an AOC from this list.
