Corps of Engineers cuts Lake Superior outflow
Posted September 4, 2005

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. The Army Corps of Engineers has reduced water releases to the lower Great Lakes because of dropping water levels in Lake Superior.

The Corps cut outflow by 14 percent to 78-thousand cubic feet per second.

The agency says a lingering drought has caused Lake Superior's water supply to be significantly below average.

The water supply to Lakes Michigan and Huron also was below normal last month.

Reports for August show that Lake Superior began its seasonal decline a month early, falling by two inches in August, when the lake normally rises slightly.
