Many Along Lakeshore Watching Water Levels Closely – Rochester, News, Weather, Sports, and Events –

Reporting from Greece, NY:

“If we have a hot summer, it’s going to be terrible,” said Smith of Hamlin.

Last summer the International Joint Commission held a series of public meetings to gain input for a yet to be released lake flow management plan.

Lake Ontario’s level is above its level of one month ago, but below its mark of a year ago, according to data published by the IJC.

“Low water is a good thing it actually keeps the wetlands diverse, keeps the mosaics of different plants that filter our water and cleanse our water,” said Jim Howe of the Nature Conservancy

There are two items that will be unveiled by the IJC in the near future. First, an Adaptive Management Plan for the entire Great Lakes basin which is expected by the end of May. Second, the IJC continues to deliberate on its Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River regulation plan, according to IJC spokesman Frank Bevaqua.

Another set of public meetings is expected, though dates have yet to be announced.
