At this point, The IJC might be on the hook after what I read on their Facebook page the other day. The IJC was saying they did not want to up the flows because they would shut shipping down. I understand shipping is a mutli million dollar business on the Great Lakes but holding back water and causing millions of dollars of damage opens you up to a butt load of trouble. Also, the lake was brought up to the 2014 plan level early in the season and held there. If the lake was at the historical average or 58D plan, there would be less water in the lake from the start and less flooding now. Tug Hill had huge amounts of snow pack, the upper Great Lakes were all above average. We were on track to have good water even if we had a drought (see last seasons water levels). We were in a severe drought and due to the higher water in the upper Great Lakes, Lake Ontario held just below the season forecast and lake level plan.
