Statement from Governor Cuomo on the International Joint Commission Reducing Lake Ontario Outflows

TOP Statement from Governor Cuomo on the...

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today released the following statement regarding the International Joint Commission's reduction of outflows from Lake Ontario:

"Once again, the International Joint Commission has demonstrated extreme disregard for New Yorkers by prioritizing shipping interests over the safety and security of people living along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Water levels remain at historic highs and it is senseless to reduce outflows at this time. This decision must be immediately reversed to protect our residents, businesses and communities along the shoreline."
