"Yeah, it's like almost any other large natural resource... horribly managed. I recall a lot of the drama had to do with the dredging of the St Clair River, which seems very unstable in its outflows due to continued erosion and/or…"

":) Well they sure are vast and a lot to keep track of.  8 states or so touching them, plus Canada, a lot going on!  Taken as a group we could contend that the Great Lakes could be the 8th natural wonder of the world. "

"Doh, yes, Ontario! I got the book from the library and unfortunately can't do any sort of quick fact-checking. But the overwhelming point was that the outflow rates are all ongoing, highly imperfect engineering decisions (crudely adjusting for…"

"You meant to say Lake Ontario, yes?  From this article: "Can the government control water levels? There is no human regulation of water levels in Lake Erie, unlike in Lakes Superior and Ontario, at either end of the system, Mackey said.…"

lft_rat replied to Mike Schwab's discussion Lake Michigan at record high levels.
"The water level is basically controlled by humans at Lake Erie. It's obviously influenced by the weather, but it's being higher or lower has everything to do with current management. I researched this and climate change impacts before…"

Phillip Hutchinson replied to Mike Schwab's discussion Lake Michigan at record high levels.
"Agreed, it's very interesting to watch. There have been huge swings in the last few years. The long-term average is 578.84 feet (since 1918).  The video of the cyclists being knocked down by waves was from a big storm in Sept. 2011, when…"

"Well, 13,000-11,000 years ago Lake Chicago (the predecessor to Lake Michigan) ran west to LaGrange and south to Homewood and Lansing. For what it's worth."

Phillip Hutchinson replied to Mike Schwab's discussion Lake Michigan at record high levels.
"Yes, but not the one most people think of. Hydrologically Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are the same body of water, and have the same water level.  The main outflow of the combined lakes is the St. Clare river to Lake Erie."
