This report reviews selected works of the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Study for the International Joint Commission (IJC). The IJC is a bi-national organization created in 1909 to consider water and related issues along the U.S.-Canada boundary. In 1999, the IJC prepared a plan of study on the effects of water level and flow regulation on various stakeholder interests in the basin, and it established the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Study Board to implement that plan.
