INTERNATIONAL JOINT COMMISSION

BOUNDARY WATERS TREATY OF 1909

Public hearings on review of emergency levels for Rainy and Namakan lakes

The International Joint Commission (IJC) is inviting the public to comment on emergency levels for Rainy and Namakan lakes (also known as rule curves). Comments will be accepted at public hearings and by mail, email and online until September 1, 2017 (http://www.participateijc.org/rainy-namakan-lakes-rule-curves). Following receipt of the International Rainy and Namakan Lakes Rule Curves Study Board’s final report in late June, the International Joint Commission will be holding public hearings in the basin on its own report Draft Changes to the Rainy and Namakan Lakes Rule Curves for Public Comment (http://ijc.org/files/tinymce/uploaded/publications/draft_IJC_rainynamakanrulecurves_2017.pdf).

The Commission is considering proposed changes to its Orders of Approval for the emergency regulation of Rainy and Namakan lakes that have been recommended by the Study Board. The Commission’s proposal relating to the emergency regulation of levels on Rainy and Namakan lakes is centred on five general themes:

  1. Changes to existing rule curves: Alternative C for the rule curves for Rainy and Namakan lakes, which includes a rule curve for high flood risk years for Rainy Lake, should be adopted.
  2. An expanded role for the Water Levels Committee (WLC) of the International Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Board (IRLWWB): The WLC should be empowered to target specific levels outside of the middle portion of the rule curve for each lake. New operational guidelines are needed for the WLC, and further guidance, in the form of a refined directive for the IRLWWB and the WLC, is needed.
  3. Adaptive management: The Commission will work with the IRLWWB to determine how best to implement an adaptive management strategy in the medium- and long-term planning and activities of both the IRLWWB and the Commission in the basin.
  4. Stakeholder concerns: The views of stakeholders, as heard through the Commission and Study Board engagement and hearings, will be communicated to governments.
  5. Engagement with Indigenous communities: The Commission endorses the Study Board’s recommendations regarding improving engagement and collaboration with Tribes, First Nations, and Métis communities.

A series of public hearings were held in the basin from August 16 to 18, 2017. The public comment period on the Commission’s report is open until September 1, 2017 (http://www.participateijc.org/rainy-namakan-lakes-rule-curves). If you would like to comment on the Commission’s draft report, you can do so online at www.ParticipateIJC.org or by email at ParticipateIJC@ottawa.ijc.org.

Public input is essential to the Commission’s rendering of a final decision to proceed with the proposed changes to the management of emergency levels and flows of the Rainy and Namakan lakes, and to the Commission’s perspective on changes to the operations and guidance provided to the Water Levels Committee, engagement with Tribes, First Nations, and Métis, and adaptive management.

The International Joint Commission was established under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 to help the United States and Canada prevent and resolve disputes over the use of the waters the two countries share. Its responsibilities include investigating and reporting on issues of concern when asked by the governments of the two countries.

Under the Rainy Lake Convention, the IJC determines when emergency conditions exist in the Rainy Lake watershed, by reason of high or low water, and adopts measures of control with respect to the dams at Kettle Falls and International Falls.
