Lake Michigan water level up, latest readings show

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.
