Report - Great Lakes Water Levels Continue Seasonal RiseFri, 28 May 2021 17:01:02 EDT
Great Lakes water levels are below last year's record levels but will continue rising before peaking in the summer months, according to the U.S Army Corps of Engineers.
Officials say, during the spring, water levels typically begin a seasonal rise due to increased precipitation and runoff. Drier conditions so far this spring limited seasonal rises on some lakes, however, there are still a few months left in the typical seasonal rise period.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' most recent six-month forecast, covering months May through October, indicate Great Lakes water levels will remain below record high levels, but above average on all lakes, except Lake Ontario.
