Commercial Navigation Evaluation
- Understanding how the region’s interests may be affected by future changes in Great Lakes water levels, particularly in the context of other drivers of change, is a critical step in developing a fair and effective new regulation plan for Lake Superior and the upper Great Lakes. Commercial navigation interests represent owners/operators of the United States and Canadian fleets of bulk carriers, tankers, barges and other commercial ships transporting goods in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system, as well as ocean-going cargo vessels that use the system. The Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 lists navigation second in the order of precedence.
