Great Lakes Water Levels Inch Higher

Lake superior and Lake St. Claire are up between one and two inches in the last month, and the overall water height in the great lakes is up around half a foot from this time in 2008.

This is good news for most property owners with docks along the lakes, for boaters and freighters who now can breath a little easier when worrying about their draft in shallow areas.

Here is a quote from the article, found here : "the lakes of key interest to Metro Detroiters remain significantly higher than a year ago: Lakes Huron and Michigan are up 8 inches, Lake St. Clair is up 7 inches and Lake Erie is 4 inches higher than this time in 2008"
