General Permit for Lake Ontario Flooding

This General Permit allows shoreline property owners to repair and stabilize properties damaged by high water levels and wind-driven high wave events due to above average precipitation and snow melt in the Great Lakes Basin.


If You Care, Leave It There

It's peak season for wildlife giving birth. If you find a fawn or other young animal, in nearly all cases it's best to keep your distance and do not disturb. Do not consider young wildlife as possible pets; this is illegal.
