Regulation – Niagara Falls

A Reference to report on the measures or works necessary above the Niagara Falls to permit compliance with the IJC's recommendations under Docket 64 and to report if flows over the Falls could be less than specified under the Niagara Treaty of 1950 without detriment to the scenic beauty of the Falls.

The reference was amended in 1961when the request relating to a decrease in the flow over the Falls was withdrawn.
The IJC's recommendation for the extension of existing control structures and that they be supervised by the existing board led to additional studies and the construction of extended control structures by Ontario Hydro and the Power Authority of the State of New York (Docket 75).
