International Joint Commission To Consider Review Of Plan 2014

The U.S. and Canadian agency that regulates the water level on Lake Ontario will look into possibly changing its controversial Plan 2014.

The International Joint Commission says it is getting a total of $3 million from the two countries to look at possible improvements to the plan.

The review is expected to take between a year-and-a-half and two years.

Plan 2014 is blamed by its critics for the lakeshore flooding in 2017 and 2019.

The current lake level is above 246 feet, which is higher than usual at this time of year. And Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich says the IJC has already shelved the plan, allowing greater releases of water from the lake.
