Lakes Huron and Michigan continue to rise in 2019 . This took it very close to breaching lake water levels records last set in May 1986. Its expected to be a record setting year in 2020.
It’s soooo close. The Detroit Army Corps of Engineers is reporting that all of the Great Lakes have exceed record water levels last seen in the 1980’s, except for the Lake Huron-Michigan Water Levels.
Proposed rules changes to the Great Lakes Compact will make it easier for petitioners to ask for a water diversion and alter some of the provisions in the current rules that outline the need for public comment.
