There are 3 key stages of the RAP: Stage 1 is a detailed description of the environmental problem; Stage 2 identifies remedial actions and options; Stage 3 is the final document providing evidence that the beneficial uses have been restored and the AOC can be “delisted”. The St. Marys River is a 112-km international channel that flows from Lake Superior into the North Channel of Lake Huron. The Area of Concern extends approximately two thirds of the river, from its head at Whitefish Bay downstream to St. Joseph Island.
