IJC did promise that we may see higher lake levels and lower levels as well. They came thru on the first promise and I believe they will on the second. But the lower level will not be seen until after the shipping season ends. If we do get another drought, IJC has the ability to keep Lake Ontario at a safe level with releasing more water into it. Remember last years drought and looking at the lake, you would be hard pressed to see much of a change. Time will tell, hey they could throw a monkey wrench into this and increase the lake level early again, like they did this year.
