According to the latest readings from the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, the water level in Lake Michigan is six
inches higher than last year, and only nine inches below
its long-term average.
Over the last two years, the lake has slowly been recapturing
its water volume after an extended low period. Seasonal
rises are typical in spring, and drops are typical in
fall and winter, but the lake is currently above its level
even for last spring at this time.
As it stands, only Lakes Michigan and Huron are below
their long-term averages among the Great Lakes, with Lake
Superior just reaching its long-term average this month.
