NY - Lake Ontario water levels above average, but below record high
There's good news and bad news to report about water levels on Lake Ontario.
According to the International Lake Ontario – St. Lawrence River Board, Lake Ontario's water level is still well above average, but it's also well below record levels.
The board said the lake is now likely to remain below record-highs through the spring.
Officials said this is largely due to favorable weather conditions, but also "demonstrates the effectiveness of water regulation to help the system recover after the recent record-high water events."
