Sign Petition To Oppose Changing Lake Ontario Water Levels

Recommended Posts

By signing the Lake Ontario Riparian Alliance (LORA) petition to the NYS governor and The International Joint Commission (IJC), you can add your concerns to those of others - perhaps helping to avoid a significant change to managing Lake Ontario water levels.

The IJC'c current plan, known as Bv7, seeks to restore/improve the quality of wetlands.

"IJC has stated that the damages and benefits for the proposed BV7 are based upon the results of a study completed in 2006. However, the IJC has not addressed the significant and serious deficiencies in the analyses and conclusions of that Study. Estimates of shoreline damage are substantially underestimated, nor are there any provisions for reparations. Economic impacts to businesses and homes in bay communities, are not taken into consideration. Impacts on public infrastructure, sewers and septic systems in particular, are not taken into consideration. During high water levels (247’ and above), sewer systems from the Niagara River to Greece, through Sodus Point and up to Watertown will be flooded and cease functioning - - a health and environmental issue of major proportions."

Signing the petition is easy.
