Low Lake Erie levels may cause hazards
Ohio Beacon Journal

COLUMBUS - Lake Erie water levels in 2003 are likely to be 8 to 9 inches lower than last summer and may create problems for boaters.

The expected levels, which are based on the January forecast from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are similar to what was observed in 2001, said spokesman Fred Snyder of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program in Port Clinton.

About 90 percent of Lake Erie's water is provided from the Detroit River, coming from the three upper Great Lakes. Snow in those areas around Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron is sharply down, the corps said.

It appears likely that Lake Erie boaters will encounter low-water hazards similar to those experienced in 2001, Snyder said.
