April Showers Bring ... Higher River Levels

April Showers Bring ... Higher River Levels

Posted: Updated:

Have you noticed water levels seem high on the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario?

The watchdog group Save the River is keeping an eye on it. 

The group says levels are about six inches higher than last year because of all the rain we got in the first part of April. 

They say it's also higher -- by about 18 inches -- above the average for this time of year taken from 1918 to 2016.

A plan approved this year -- called Plan 2014 -- gives the International River Board of Control some flexibility in regulating river levels, but there's only so much they can do when Mother Nature rains down.
