February 21, 2022 – President Mike Borrelli has been alerted to an opportunity for public comment on Lake Ontario regulation.
Plan 2014 is the plan for regulating Lake Ontario outflows that went into effect in 2017. In two of the first three years after the plan was adopted, extremely wet conditions caused record floods on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. In response to public concerns about these extraordinarily high water levels, the International Joint Commission (IJC) asked its Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Adaptive Management (GLAM) Committee to launch an expedited review of Plan 2014.
The GLAM’s Committee’s report on the Phase 1 of the Expedited Review of Plan 2014 is available for public comment from Thursday, February 17, 2022 to Monday, April 18, 2022.
