The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Adaptive Management (GLAM) Committee will undertake the monitoring, modeling and assessment needed to support on-going evaluation of the regulation of water levels and flows. The GLAM Committee will report to the Lake Superior Board of Control, Niagara River Board of Control and St. Lawrence River Board of Control.
The report of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Task Team provided the basis for the GLAM Committee. Knowledge gained during the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Study (2000-2006) and International Upper Great Lakes Study (2007-2012) will be updated and used by the GLAM Committee to provide on-going information on how the regulation of water levels and flows affects socio-economic interests and the environment. As more is learned and as conditions change over time, this information will help determine whether changes to regulation should be considered.
