A wide range of issues is expected to be discussed, when a committee of the International Joint Commission meets in Goderich this summer.
The IJC is tasked with a number of oversight and advisory responsibilities of all waterways shared by Canada and the United States.
Huron County Councillor Myles Murdock tells Country 104.9 News that Goderich is unique because of the mix of uses along the town's lakeshore.
Goderich is among only a handful of communities on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes that boasts beaches alongside a working commercial harbour.
Murdock says the IJC's work is crucial in the quality and use of Great Lakes water, because more than 30 million Canadian and American residents depend on it in their daily lives.
He says one of the meeting's proponents is familiar with Goderich, and the variety of water and land uses in the surrounding area.
The meeting will held on August 7th, at the Knights of Columbus hall on Parsons Court.
