Many people living on the Lake Ontario shoreline have been living with fear since January 7th. They’re bracing for flooding and erosion.
They say it’s the result of a new plan that controls the lake’s water levels. The United States agreed to that plan with Canada during the Obama Administration. Those people on the lake are now appealing to the new president.
IJC Plan 2014 basically calls for higher highs and lower lows for Lake Ontario’s water levels. Environmentalists say it will make the lake healthier. But people living on the lake say those higher highs will cause issues.
