Video Feature: "Lake Erie: Beyond the Surface", Part 4
It is the last of four programs dealing with the fate and future of our great lake.
Under the cold murky water of Lake Erie lie thousands of shipwrecks, evidence of our rich maritime heritage.
For centuries, these waters have provided vital shipping lanes, abundant food, and the power to drive industry. But while the water's generosity seemed limitless, the lake itself was not. It's taken decades to reclaim this greatest of resources. We stand by the shores of a cleaner lake, but also at the crossroads of some key decisions.
What does the future hold for this lake? Our region?
Channel 3 explores the growth of international shipping, lakefront development, how Lake Erie will be managed to ensure its future, the newest environmental threat and the lake's role as a renewable energy resource.
