The International Joint Commission says Lake Ontario Water levels remain at record highs, but progress is being made.

According to the IJC, the lake is down nearly a foot from June 13 when it reached historic levels. The IJC said the water is down thanks to drier weather and record outflow.

The dams letting the water out of the lake remain at capacity, releasing more than 2.5 million gallons of water per minute. The IJC said Lake Erie, which dumps into Lake Ontario, is also at record highs, further complicating the issue.

New York State recently announced $20 million dollars in flood damage funding for those impacted by the water.
