International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board
The International Joint Commission established the International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board in 2016 to undertake a study of the causes, impacts, risks and potential solutions to flooding in the basin as per the Reference received from the U.S. and Canadian Governments. The Study Board was created to undertake Option B of the 2013 Plan of Study outlined in the International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Technical Working Group's final report and technical reports submitted to the Commission in November 2015.
