G.L. Water Levels

"Lakes Huron/Michigan will fall by 3.5 feet over record by 2030, then rise 1 foot over record by ‘40"

New research on water levels projects an unprecedented drop of water levels on Lakes Michigan-Huron and Georgian Bay to 1.1 metres (3.5 feet) below the record low by 2030.
By 2040, levels may rise to 0.3 metres (one foot) higher than the 1986 record high.

The study, “Prediction of Lake Levels on Lakes Michigan-Huron and Erie” [1], by W.F. Baird & Associates Coastal Engineers Ltd., was commissioned by the Georgian Bay Great Lakes Foundation [GBGLF]

The Baird conclusions are essentially the same as those found in a recently completed five-year study, by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), presented during a week-long Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands webinar series from April 4 to 8.

The ECCC study predicts that all Great Lake levels will generally trend upwards, with increasing variability. Lake Michigan-Huron currently has, by far, the widest range between high water and low water levels of all Great Lakes, at 6.3 feet. The study suggests that this may go to 13 feet.
