Submitted by Aaron Smith <Aaron.M.Smith@lrb01.usace.army.mil>


Dear Friends of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River:

You and the members of your group are invited to attend one of the public meetings being held by the International Lake Ontario - St. Lawrence River Water Level Study this summer.  We hope that you will put a link on your website to our site, www.losl.org, and let your members know about the meeting located in your area.

Before the Study Board prepares its final report with candidate plans to the regulate the outflows from Lake Ontario through the St. Lawrence River for the International Joint Commission, we need your input regarding our candidate plans:

Plan A:  Balanced Economic Plan

    * Designed to maximize overall economic benefits.
    * Provides some improvement for the environment, especially for the Upper St. Lawrence River.
    * Has losses for shoreline interests on Lake Ontario and the River.
    * Provides recreational boating benefits.

Plan B:  Balanced Environmental Plan

    * Designed to simulate more natural conditions and provide overall economic benefits.
    * Improves the environment on the Lake and Upper River.
    * Has losses to shoreline interests with significant flooding potential around Montréal.
    * Has losses to recreational boating, especially on the Lake.

Plan D:  Blended Benefits Plan

    * Designed for balanced performance, with overall economic benefits and minimizes losses. 
    *  Little change from 1958D with deviations (1958DD) for the environment.
    * No overall losses for shoreline interests, but some flooding potential.
    * Provides recreational boating benefits.

Please attend a meeting this summer to provide feedback on the various plans.  The schedule for summer meetings is listed below.  Please mark the calendar with the meeting location nearest to you and let members of your group know.  There will be an open house before each meeting at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m.
