The International Upper Great Lakes Study (IUGLS) Board is holding public meetings this summer in the U.S. and Canada on the status of its work on water levels in the Great Lakes.

The meetings regard phase 2 of the board’s work, and will present information and gather input from the public.

The IUGLS Board is part of the International Joint Commission that oversees  issues related to the Great Lakes and other waterways that run along the border between Canada and the U.S. The commission was established by the 1909 Boundary Waters Treaty between the two countries.

The commission’s board on water levels approves the construction of dams and hydroelectric power stations, for example, and sets conditions for the operation of such structures that can affect water levels and flows upstream and downstream on both sides of the border.

Six meetings are planned in Ontario during August, in Sarnia, Collingwood, Midland, Manitoulin Island, Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.
