MASSENA—The New York Power Authority announced Friday that the gates at Iroquois Dam near Waddington have been reopened to their normal operating positions in response to decreased water levels on Lake St. Lawrence.  The order to reopen the gates was issued by the International St. Lawrence River Board of Control to the Power Authority and Ontario Power Generation, joint owners of the dam.
