International Lake of the Woods Control Board

The International Lake of the Woods Control Board membership is appointed by the two federal governments.  It is responsible for maintaining water levels on Lake of the Woods when the levels exceed elevations of 1056 or 1061 feet above sea level in accordance with the 1925 Lake of the Woods Convention and Protocol, signed by Canada and the United States.  When the lake is between those levels water levels are managed by the Canadian Lake of the Woods Board. If there is any disagreement between the two members of the International Lake of the Woods Control Board, that matter is to be referred to the IJC.
