IJC: We Can Not Change Plan 2014 On Our Own

The International Joint Commission has delayed a meeting on the future of water levels in Lake Ontario.

Officials considered holding the meeting yesterday, but are now looking to discuss the issue in the coming days.

Members say they will talk about the future of Plan 2014, which manages water levels but allows greater fluctuations within them. They did say that they lack the power to make changes to the plan on their own and any changes would need approval from the U.S. and Canadian governments.

Officials will continue to increase outflows from the lake and consider additional flood relief measures that might help shoreline property owners.

Some have said the plan is responsible for the devastating flooding along the shoreline.
