Higher Water Levels & Narrower Beaches at Great Lakes This Summer
You could be seeing some changes to the Michigan beaches this summer as some are predicting higher water levels. According to WLNS, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office in Detroit have said they predict to see higher water levels at 4 out of 5 Great Lakes in the next six months.
Water levels were at record lows about six year ago but they have defintely rebounded. Some predictions are seeing Lake Superior and Erie to have unusually high levels by May or late Spring. Meanwhile, Lake Huron and Michigan should be above normal but not record breaking.
When you have high water levels it means that you will have narrower beaches, but it will help ships navigate and move easier on the water. More on the story here.
