Apply adaptive management to address extremes

Adaptive management has an important role to play in addressing the risks of future extreme water levels in the upper Great Lakes, particularly given the limits of Lake Superior regulation and the high costs and impacts associated with restoration structures and additional multi-lake regulation. An adaptive management strategy to address future extreme conditions in the Great Lakes- St. Lawrence River basin should be applied, and should consist of six core initiatives: 1) strengthening hydroclimatic monitoring and modelling; 2) tracking of key performance indicators and changes in vulnerabilities to water levels; 3) ensuring more comprehensive information management and distribution; 4) improving tools and processes for decision makers to evaluate their actions; 5) establishing a collaborative regional Great Lakes- St. Lawrence River system adaptive management study for dealing with water level extremes; and, 6) promoting the integration of water quality and quantity.
