Plan 2012 provides overall economic improvements

Lake Superior Regulation Plan 2012 will provide modest benefits compared to the existing Plan 1977A for commercial navigation, hydroelectric generation and coastal zone interests, under both wetter and drier NBS conditions. Benefits will be on the order of about a million dollars per year depending on NBS that are experienced. Importantly, under the possibility of very dry future NBS conditions, commercial navigation through the Sault Ste. Marie locks, as well as hydroelectric generation at the St. Marys River power plants would be threatened with closure under Plan 1977A, but not under Lake Superior Regulation Plan 2012.
