The International Joint Commission is seeking public input on proposed functions, structure and member competencies for its two advisory boards under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement of 2012.

The agreement directs the IJC to create a Great Lakes Water Quality Board to be its principal adviser, and a Great Lakes Science Advisory Board to inform the commission and the quality board on scientific issues related to the agreement, according to an IJC news release.

Detailed functions proposed by the commission are subject to the approval of the U.S. and Canadian federal governments.
