As you prepare for a
big holiday week with Victoria Day in Canada and the 4th of July in the
U.S., make plans to attend International Joint Commission public
hearings and provide your views
regarding the findings and recommendations of the International Upper Great Lakes Study. From July 9 through Jully 17, there will be
13 public hearings. Visit the hearings website to find more information about the report and to comment online.
The Study Board's report,
Lake Superior Regulation: Addressing Uncertainty in Upper Great Lakes Water Levels,
the formulation and evaluation of options for a new regulation plan.
The report also addresses restoration and multi-lake regulation as
alternative approaches for dealing with extreme water levels beyond
those addressed by Lake Superior regulation alone,
and considers the important role that adaptive management can play to
help the interests better anticipate and respond to extreme water levels
in the future. Your comments at the public hearings will help the
Commission decide on a new regulation plan and
recommendations to governments. Please, make plans to participate.
Comments will be accepted at the hearings, by mail and email and online
through August 31.

Why, thank you, righty commenters:
"Jimbo, I'll give you credit; you are like the mosquitoes in Alaska, you never go away."
And on my Purple WI blog:
"I can't believe I am saying this, but I actually have to agree with Jimmy on the [proposed, new $200 million] DOT building. If the current place is functional, why do we need a new one? PS: As usual, the rest of his article is complete liberal garbage."
