    The International Joint Commission (IJC) announced the membership of the Rainy-Namakan Lakes Rule Curves Review Public Advisory Group (RCPAG) on Feb 16, 2016.

    The 28 member advisory group has representation from both Canada and the United States, on Rainy River, Rainy Lake and the Namakan chain of lakes. Members come from lake property associations, hydro power, recreational guides, house boat rental companies, First Nations and tribes, local government, recreational boaters and environmental and conservation organizations.

The RCPAG will also review and comment on study board reports and advise the study board on the responsiveness of the study process to public concerns.
