Serial Information: Journal of the Power Division, 1968, Vol. 94, Issue 2, Pg. 217-234

Document Type: Journal Paper


The criteria used for developing Lake Ontario regulation plans are given. Regulation plans have evolved as experience has been gained resulting in better use of the water resource. Flexibility in the St. Lawrence releases and pumped storage facilities at the Niagara Project can be used to improve efficiency and reduce the cost of power required from thermal sources to meet New York power needs. Studies are underway to determine how much additional value Niagara power output would have if Lake Erie outflows were controlled.
