Lake Superior Water Levels Projected to Remain Average

Recent concerns about high water levels in Lake Superior are fading…

Lake Superior is currently very near its long-term average, and is forecast to remain near average, or slightly below average over the next six months.

That’s U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Detroit District Watershed Hydrology Section Chief Keith Kompoltowicz, who previewed the summer lake level forecast in the Corps’ “On the Level” video release.

In April, Lake Superior was about an inch below its long-term average. Kompoltowicz says the water level is expected to benefit from spring and summer rains…

Lake Superior’s forecast shows a steady rise through August or September.

Levels for the rest of the Great Lakes remain above average, but are well below the record highs recorded over the past several years.
