Excerpt from Final Report of the International Joint Commission: On the Pollution of Boundary Waters Reference; Washington-Ottawa
As to whether or not the broad scope of the inquiry is to be circumscribed by construction so as to confine the same to cases of pollution of the boundary waters upon one side of the boundary which may extend to and affect the boundary waters upon the other side.
By letter under date of November 19, 1912, the commission was informed by Mr. Knox, Secretary of State, that the Governments of the United States and Great Britain had reached an accord that the inquiry is to be confined to cases of pollution of boundary waters on one side of the boundary which extend to and affect the boundary waters upon the other Side.
The original submission as modified by this limitation constitutes the reference under which the commission is acting.
