Water levels on Lake Ontario are well below the record peak they hit last May, but they are relatively high for this time of year. That’s according to the International Lake Ontario - St. Lawrence River Board which can help regulate the lake level to some extent via the Moses Saunders dam.
As of January 30th, Lake Ontario was a foot above average.
Arun Heer is U.S. Secretary for the board. He says the board continues to maximize the outflow of water from Lake Ontario.
