Sep 11, 2007 — U.S. and Canadian officials with the International Joint Commission has spent five years, and $20 million, on developing a plan to deal with water levels, as well as other issues, including invasive species and shipping. That plan, meant in part to ease the region's economic and environmental concerns, was to be made public at the beginning of next week. Yesterday, the IJC says its recommendation will be delayed. Frank Bevaqua is public information officer for the IJC. He said the commission "just isn't there yet."
