Lake Ontario, St. Lawrence: Highs & Lows

Video duration: 26:46

The International Joint Commission (IJC), a bi-national organization that helps Canada & the U.S. manage their shared water, has proposed a new plan for water levels in Lake Ontario & the St. Lawrence River. The plan, BV7, would raise the maximum water level & reduce the minimum to help regenerate the ecosystem. Although environmentalists are in support of the proposal, many homeowners are not.
