Lake Superior water levels near seasonal record high
Detroit (AP) — Water levels in the Great Lakes are continuing a two-year rebound.
The Detroit News reports Monday that the latest estimates from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers show levels in the Lake Michigan-Huron system and Lake Superior are between 5 inches and 9 inches above levels from one year ago.
Statistics also show Lake St. Clair is 1 inch lower than last year, and Ontario is 3 inches lower.
Army Corps data indicates Lake Ontario, Michigan/Huron, Erie and Superior ended November within inches of historical levels for this time of year. Lake St. Clair is slightly above its historical level.
The lakes had been declining for most of the past decade.
