Abstract : This appendix presents the results of the regulation studies undertaken by the International Lake Erie Regulation Study Board, which was established by the International Joint Commission on 3 May 1977. The purpose of these studies was to develop regulation plans for Lake Erie, employing only partial control of Lake Erie outflow, and determine the effect of such plans, hydrologically, on the entire Great Lakes system. The results of the hydrologic analysis as presented in this appendix, indicate that limited regulation of Lake Erie provides for a general lowering of the water levels of the system, with impacts being felt on both the maximum and minimum levels. The results of the entire study are provided in the International Lake Erie Regulation Study main report. (Author)
