International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board
The International Joint Commission established the International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board in 2016 to undertake a study of the causes, impacts, risks and potential solutions to flooding in the basin. The Study Board was created to undertake Option B of the 2013 Plan of Study outlined in the International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Technical Working Group's final report and technical reports submitted to the Commission in November 2015. Read the current Study's work plan and the Study brochure.
This site contains information about upcoming events, study news, and is where you can share your views on the Study's work. Your participation can help inform the Study Board of public opinions of possible mitigation measures as they work to make recommendations that will be provided to the International Joint commission in 2022.

The Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board is inviting you to participate in a series of technical webinars that will be taking place over the next several weeks. Starting on Thursday November 5th, the Study Board will host a weekly webinar (morning in English; afternoon in French) presenting some of the technical aspects of the study from some of the experts leading the research.
