Does the plan minimize disproportionate losses?

This is the sixth of nine Study Board decision criteria used in the evaluation of Lake Superior regulation plans. The Study Board defined disproportionate loss in terms of two interests, shoreline protection (long-term costs of maintaining existing structures) and recreational boating (changes in the availability of slips) that had potential lake-to-lake conflicts and were not addressed in other decision criteria. The point of this decision criterion was to limit the negative impact that any one region would receive from a plan that was better overall. The Study Board tried to minimize these regional impacts, and it flagged as disproportionate shoreline protection costs in any one region that increased by more than 8 percent.
