Legal Review of Orders of Approval

James Chandler;
To assist the IUGLS Study Board in its review and recommendation of the Lake Superior regulation plan, a number of legal issues were identified and discussed. These include: the provisions of the 1914 Boundary Waters Treaty between Canada and the United States and how they relate to the Orders of Approval and Supplementary Orders issued by the IJC; the practice and process followed by the IJC in issuing supplementary orders; details on the establishment of the IJC's Lake Superior Board of Control and membership appointment; Board of Control responsibilities and limits of its authority in adjusting Lake Superior outflows during normal and extreme high or low water supplies; and potential flexibility or limitations that enhance or restrict the IJC and the Lake Superior Board of Control in management of levels and flows of the upper Great Lakes system.
