At these meetings, experts from the International Upper Great Lakes Study (IUGLS) will present the latest scientific findings and provide current information about water levels. They will also briefly outline the structure and purpose of the Study and review a history of water level regulation in the Great Lakes. The presentation will stress the importance of public input to the Study process and the need for interested individuals and organizations from throughout the basin to participate. Attendees will have an extensive opportunity to present their views and ask questions.
The initial focus of IUGLS is whether possible physical changes in the
St. Clair River are contributing to near record low levels in the upper Great
Lakes. More broadly, the Study is examining whether regulation of outflows
