Communications Assessment of 2017 High Water Event: Lake Ontario – St. Lawrence River System
During the high water event of 2017, the Board responded to the communications challenge on many fronts. The high water also occurred at the same time as a new regulation plan, Plan 2014, was implemented. The International Lake Ontario – St. Lawrence River Board (the Board) has hired a Professional Communications Consultant to assess how well the Board communicated with the public during the 2017 high water event. The work will develop a Bi-National Communications Plan for Extraordinary Situations for use in the future by all IJC Boards.
