The use of an “Ice Boom” to stop ice movement on the Lower Great Lakes has done and continues to do collasal damage to the Ecosystem. Ice flow is an essential force that counteracts the proccess of errosion and decay. Ice Movement also prepares the environment for reproduction of most of the native species of fish, plants, birds and animals.
