Lake Level
(2008-08-01)
(wgvu) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says rain
in July raised Lake Superior to within five inches of its long-term
average water level, putting it 16 inches higher than it was at the
same time last year.
A slight rise also is expected in August.
With the higher water, the Corps' International Lake Superior
Board of Control planned to increase the amount of water allowed to
flow into Lakes Michigan and Huron, which have the same level and
remain 13 inches below the long-term average.
The Michigan-Huron level rose an inch in July and is eight
inches higher than a year ago.
