Regulators for Lake Ontario are continuing to push a record amount of water out of Lake Ontario to prevent the same type of flooding that plagued shoreline communities last spring.

The International Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Board says the outflows from the lake in February were the highest in history.

It comes after local and state officials criticized the management plan during last year's record flooding, caused by heavy spring rainfall.

The board says they expect to maintain the high outflows this spring.
