Formulation and Evaluation of New Multi-Lake Regulation Plans
- An exploratory analysis was conducted on the potential of multi-lake regulation to address the impacts of uncertain future hydrological conditions in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River system. The main objective was to investigate the capacity of multi-lake regulation to reduce the frequency of occurrence of extreme water level conditions within the system under potential future extreme water supply scenarios. Extreme scenarios were selected and optimization tools were used to develop new multi-lake regulation plans, which consisted of new regulation rules for the existing control structures on the St. Marys and St. Lawrence rivers, as well as hypothetical structures on the St. Clair and/or Niagara rivers. Multi-lake plans were developed and evaluated against two objectives, a risk-based objective, as measured by a plan's ability to reduce the risks from extreme water levels, and the costs to implement such plans, including control structure construction and excavation required.
