Read the full story from the International Joint Commission.

Fort Frances, Ontario, and International Falls, Minnesota, were the sites of listening sessions in August by the International Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Board.

The focus was on major flooding in the spring of 2022 that affected the region for months.

The board’s Water Levels Committee presented a video on the flood event and community members shared views and concerns to help inform a post-flood report being prepared for the board. Meteorologists at the meeting said basin residents can participate by getting involved in snowpack measuring as citizen scientists.
