Tipping Points and Indicators is a collaborative program that gives watershed planning groups the information they need to protect natural resources and enhance local economies. Using its decision support system and action planning process, communities can determine how close a watershed is to known tipping points—the thresholds that, if coursed, change how aquatic ecosystems function—and pinpoint the land use practices driving that.

The program uses cutting-edge interactive maps and simulators to encourage community participation and provide insight into how future development will move ecosystems closer to or further from tipping points. The Tipping Points and Indicators planning process is facilitated by Great Lakes Sea Grant specialists.
