Information Source The Great Lakes Basin is defined as the watershed of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River, upstream from Trois Rivieres, Quebec, consisting in New York State of the Lake Erie-Niagara River, Lake Ontario minor tributaries, Genesee River, Seneca-Oneida-Oswego River, Black River, St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain drainage basins.


Summary

These regulations set forth requirements for the registration of water withdrawals and reporting of water losses from the Great Lakes Basin. The regulations apply to water withdrawals from facilities located in the Great Lakes basin in excess of 100,000 gallons per day averaged over any consecutive 30-day period and to water withdrawals that result in a water loss from the Great Lakes basin in excess of 2,000,000 gallons per day averaged over any consecutive 30-day period. Facilities which have a valid water supply or transport permit and hydroelectric facilities licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission are not subject to the registration requirements in these regulations.
