Interests can adapt to historical range of levels; beyond this adaptive responses may be required

All of the key interests investigated in the Study can be adversely affected by both high and low water conditions. All the interests have a long-established presence in the upper Great Lakes basin, and all represent significant economic value to the region. There are clear expectations across all the interests that water levels will be maintained in the future to support their needs. While most key interests have demonstrated their capacity to adapt to changes in water level conditions that have been within historical upper or lower ranges, persistent future water levels that are outside these historical ranges would require some interests to carry out more comprehensive and costly adaptive responses than any undertaken to date.
