Abstract : The Regulatory Works Appendix describes the engineering works that would be necessary to accomplish limited regulation of Lake Erie. It also describes the remedial works that would be required in the St. Lawrence River to accommodate combined regulation plans for Lakes Erie and Ontario. Plans for limited regulation of Lake Erie are described in the International Lake Erie Regulation Study Board's Main Report and Appendix A, Regulation, both dated July 1981. Limited regulation of Lake Erie would require dredging of its outlet river so that greater flows could be released at times when high supplies to the upper Great Lakes occur, and a control structure capable of restoring the preproject outflow condition when supplies are below average. This appendix describes the existing facilities in the outlet of the Lake Erie, and discusses the problems encountered in providing such structures. It also outlines several Niagara regulatory works alternatives, describes the design criteria, and the methods used in preparing preliminary designs and cost estimates. (Author)
