The International Upper Great Lakes Study (IUGLS) is holding public meetings in the United States and Canada to provide information regarding the status of the second and final phase of its work, examining Great Lakes water levels. Those who attend the meetings will have an opportunity to hear from Study Board members and researchers about preliminary findings and potential regulation plans. Topics to be covered include:

  • The regulation plan for Lake Superior outflows at Sault Ste. Marie;
  • Monitoring to allow for adaptive management;
  • Restoration scenarios for Lake Michigan-Huron water levels;
  • New data on potential climate change impacts for the Great Lakes;
  • Ongoing impacts of glacial isostatic adjustment; and,
  • Multi-lake regulation options.

If you can't make the meeting in Superior, Wisc., consider attending one of these Canadian options:

  • Aug. 10, 7-9 p.m. at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay
  • Aug. 11, 7-9 p.m. at Algoma University, Sault Ste. Marie

Shoreline property owners, boaters, anglers, governments, Native Americans, First Nations, hydroelectric power producers, and environmental and shipping organizations are encouraged to attend the public meetings and offer comments. Input received at the public meetings and during the public comment period will help inform the drafting of a final, peer-reviewed Phase 2 report to be submitted to the International Joint Commission (IJC) in March 2012.

Comments will be recorded at the public meeting and can also be submitted via:

The comment period for this Phase 2 portion of the Study ends Wednesday, August 31, 2011.
