Citing a tentative determination that pump-out stations around Lake Erie are adequate, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed establishing a no-discharge zone for the New York portion of the lake, covering 593 square miles of the lake, its tributaries and bays, and 84 miles of shoreline.
