About the Great Lakes Sea Grant Crude Oil Transport Network: The movement of crude oil through the Great Lakes basin and other critical northern watersheds presents a complex suite of opportunities and risks for the region. In partnership with the Great Lakes Commission and International Joint Commission, a network of Sea Grant professionals from throughout the Great Lakes region have assembled to provide stakeholders with risk-related resources on economic and environmental issues associated with transportation of crude oil in the Great Lakes basin and to create a forum to share knowledge, concerns, challenges, and progress.
