LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – Local lawmakers are speaking out against new guidelines that would regulate Lake Ontario water levels.

“Plan 2014” from the International Joint Committee would help protect the lake from extreme high and low levels. Legislators say this is not in the best interest of the communities on the southern shore.

Congressman Chris Collins said, “Letting the highs go higher and the lows go lower is what we are opposed to. What’s worked for 60 years continues to work.”

The legislation is being considered by the federal government. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
