This article addresses the barriers and obstacles that are facing parties harmed by transboundary pollution in the Great Lakes ecosystem. The article advocates the breakdown of reciprocal access for parties on both sides of the border. The article further advocates the breakdown of substantive barriers facing parties harmed by transboundary pollutants via the integration of the fragmented regulatory scheme into one holistic environmental statute. The environment must be looked at in a holistic manner, and the breakdown of the substantive and procedural barriers facing parties affected by pollutants is a step in that direction.
