Adaptive management has an important role in addressing risk

Adaptive management has an important role to play in addressing the risks of future changes in water levels in the upper Great Lakes. Lake Superior regulation on its own can do little to address risks of extreme lake levels downstream of Lake Superior. New structures in various parts of the Great Lakes Basin could take decades to implement and cost billions of dollars. Nor can multi-lake regulation fully eliminate the risk of extreme lake levels outside the historical range. Therefore, regardless of the Lake Superior regulation plan adopted by the IJC, ongoing monitoring and modelling efforts will be required to continue to assess risks and address uncertainties and changing conditions.
