      The IJC has approved hydroelectric power projects in the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, St. Croix River and Columbia River basins. IJC orders also apportion water in the Souris River, St. Mary River and Milk River basins, and maintain water levels to avoid emergency conditions in the Lake of the Woods basin. The Great Lakes—the earth's largest fresh water system—face many threats, including habitat degradation, overfishing, invasive species, marine debris, and pollution from oil and chemical spills. NOAA is working with the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to implement habitat restoration in the 8 Great Lakes states.
