With warm weather approaching, many will spend summer in or around the water. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reminds visitors and residents the importance of practicing safe, sensible and thoughtful activities.

Great Lakes water levels are below last year's record levels but will continue rising before peaking in the summer months. High water levels can increase dangers such as rip currents and waves, especially during periods of active weather. The Corps of Engineers urges caution around Great Lakes piers and breakwaters, particularly during times of high winds and waves.
