RIVER WATCH 2020 # 6
River Watch 2020 # 5 indicated the IJC’s Public Advisory Group, who are studying Plan 2014 with respect to the flooding in 2017 and 2019 on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, would be seeking public input into the review. I had indicated that it might be a year or more before the opportunity to provide input would occur. It would appear the Public Advisory Group are moving along at a faster pace. The following link allows you to access their latest news release. The release contains a request and a questionnaire for public input into impacts of the 2017 and 2019 events. The link to the questionnaire is contained in the text of the news release. Please note the release also contains a cautionary note that despite the IJC’s and associated agencies best efforts, flooding may still occur due to climatic events beyond anyone’s control.
Please take this opportunity to share the impacts to your property and your concerns about Plan 2014 with the Public Advisory Group.
