Great Lakes water levels continue to rise.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, has announced that Lakes Michigan, Huron, Erie along with Lake St. Clair, have all reached new monthly mean water levels for March, 2020.
All lakes are in their seasonal rise period, and are expected to reach their peaks in late Spring or early Summer.
High water levels, bring erosion, and Michigan’s coastlines will continue to see that happening.
John Allis, Chief of the Great Lakes Hydraulics and Hydrology Office, Detroit District, said “During this period of seasonal rise for the Great Lakes, near or above record high water levels will continue to cause impacts along the shoreline.”
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers warns those affected by 2019’s water levels, to expect much of the same for 2020, with water levels expected to peak around last years record levels.
